Passionate forager and a lover of the outdoors chef Paul Wedgwood will lead a group forage searching out the very best wild seasonal ingredients in the countryside near to his award winning restaurant on the 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.
