Wild Foods Foraging – What, Where & How?

Wild Foods Foraging is a unique and rewarding pastime, and a brilliant way excuse to get out in the fresh air, no matter what time of the year it is, or what the weather is like. It’s also a great excuse for getting the kids out from in front of the telly or off the computer games.

The PDF’s below are designed for any ‘Joe Soap’ to use…. The ‘What it looks like’, the ‘How to find it’, the ‘Irish history behind it’, the ‘Traditional methods of preserving it’ and the recipes are all there.

You can keep the finished product for you, your friends and family through the dark winter months, or you can set-up a stall (or share one) at Slow Foods Ireland’s, Wild & Slow Festival 2011, will take place in Macreddin Village, Co. Wicklow on November 19th & 20th. (more info to follow)
