Courses being tested – A fine mornings foraging
Last Friday a band a foragers led by Chris Westgate, our foraging tutor, left Vale House Kitchen to stroll through the Somerset countryside and see what edible delights the fields and hedgerows had to offer. The 3 hour walk crossed meadows, went through woodland and along babbling brooks and enabled Chris to share her vast knowledge of wild foods that people often overlook. The highlight was a picnic underneath an oak tree with delights made by Chris from her company Heavenly Hedgerows. A fine forage was had by all with everyone remarking how they had started to find their inner forager. Courses start in September.
