Foraging Experience

Wedgwood wild food foraging experience

Sunday 28th April

Experience Scotland’s natural larder with Wedgwood the Restaurant and Paul Wedgwood as we host a wild foraging tour of Midlothian on Sunday 28th April.

Passionate forager and a lover of the outdoors since he was with the boys scouts, chef  Paul will lead a group forage searching out the very best wild seasonal ingredients in the countryside near to the award winning restaurant on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile. Wild foraging is the ultimate in “local” and “seasonal” produce and is guaranteed to reawaken your senses so you gain a greater appreciation of your environment and the provenance of ingredients.

On this one-day course you’ll uncover a secret world of natural edible possibilities and discover how to identify edible leaves, fruit and fungi. After a morning in the wilds of Midlothian you’ll return to the restaurant to dine on a menu inspired by the mornings identifications.
