It’s time to unleash your inner hunter-gatherer. On Thursday 24 May, The Crooked Well is hosting a morning of ‘urban foraging, followed by a posh lunch from your foraged goodies’. You’ll head out into the Great Outdoors (exact location tbc, but a green space ‘within the M25’) with Nick Weston, author of ‘The Treehouse Diaries: How to Live Wild in The Woods’. He will guide your foray to recognise and collect edible delights such as pine needles, jelly ear funghi, dandelion and elderflower. Then it’s back to the pub where head chef Matt Green-Armytage will rustle up a three-course lunch. What’s more, each course will be paired with a selection of specially prepared cocktails using fruit infusions and syrups made from fragrant foraged ingredients. You see, there is life beyond the supermarket.
Tickets cost £55, which includes lunch. Read the Time Out review of The Crooked Well here.
