Followed by a cooking demo with Chef Barry O'Brien from the award winning Beech Hill Country House where Barry will discuss Love Food Hate Waste and give you some great tips on eating for free and making the most of seasonal produce, your leftovers and store cupboard favourites.
This event is run by Derry City Council and will be held in Ervey Wood, Ardmore, Derry.
On the day we will:
Walk through the historic Ervey Wood and highlight some of the seasonal produce that is available to forage in a site like this from wood sorrell, common sorrell, mushrooms, blueberries, widl strawberries and more - Gareth Austin will lead this.
Then Chef Barry O'Brien will then perform an al-fresco cooking demonstration (in the woodland) using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients - showcasing what can be down with low cost, seasonal produce.
(Barry is a regular with Gareth on foraging trips (see our blueberry forage here) and is a master of seasonal cooking - with his own walledgarden in the beechhill hotel offering him inspiration ideas each season.
This is a free event, however it's limited in numbers (we don't want a stampede), so if you think this is for you then please leave a comment belo, numbers wise 30 max.
