A foraging walk on Bere Island is sure to pique your curiosity…and your taste buds!
Edible, wild foods and foraging have slowly been returning to the dinner table since the 1970’s. People are enjoying getting to know (and then eat!) the plants that live all around them. Known for having higher nutritional content than your average grocery store produce, wild foods are a great way to immerse yourself more deeply in your local landscape AND benefit your health and wellness.
Stephanie O’Toole will lead a foraging walk along the seashore and lanes of Bere Island, collecting edible plants and seaweeds along the way. The group will then head to the Heritage Centre where Stephanie will advise how to prepare these items. A buffet meal will follow featuring food gathered on the walk and home grown island produce, with homemade cordials and wines. Stephanie uses what is abundant and available from hedgerow, woodland, garden and seashore to make traditional and contemporary foods. Stephanie uses simple, straightforward recipes and basic equipment.
