Wild Foraging Experience 14th October

Wild food foraging with Wedgwood the Restaurant

Wedgwood the Restaurant is hosting a day of “Wild Foraging Experience” on Saturday 14th October. Join one of Scotland’s leading chefs Paul Wedgwood and expert forager Mark Williams as they take you on an outdoor culinary adventure around Edinburgh.

Passionate forager and chef patron of Wedgwood the Restaurant, Paul will lead a tour foraging for the very best wild seasonal ingredients in the countryside near to his 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 kitchen for a masterclass in how to prepare the freshest of local ingredients. The masterclass will be followed by the lunch you have just prepared along with accompanying wine from the Wedgwood cellar.
