Surrey Hills Yurts Logmore Lane, Westcott Surrey RH4 3GB

Come and join us for inspired hedgerow foraging in the wondrous Surrey Hills with the famous John Wright!

We will walk around the Surrey countryside and foraging expert John Wright will teach you to recognise the many fine dining opportunities that can be found in the hedgerow, wood and field. The day will start with a traditional forager’s nip – and include a wild cocktail at some point in the proceedings, just to keep you going.  At the end of the foray John will demonstrate how to cook rural gastronomy from your  foraged treasures.

John Wright of River Cottage fame is a Dorset forager of sea, land and hedgerow who is passionate about sharing his love of all things wild and edible with others. Through his writing, forays, talks, TV and radio appearances he encourages all to take at least an occasional cook on the wild side. He is the author of  three foragers guides for the River Cottage Handbook series (The Edible Seashore, Hedgerow and Mushrooms).
