Do you know that you can bake awesome bread and muffins in an earth oven? Have you ever been foraging for brambles? And have you tried fried insects dipped in chocolate sauce?? Delicious!!
Over the course of five days, you’ll learn all about foraging and wild cooking. You’ll get to build and use your own outdoor oven, bake breads and puddings, make biscuits, jams and juices. You’ll also learn about cooking over an open fire and using Kelly kettles.
You’ll complete the mission by writing and publishing your very own wild recipe book and opening an exciting pop-up restaurant to welcome your families!
