Go foraging for your dinner and cocktails in Hertfordshire
A new season of guided walks led by the Foragers and departing from St Albans and London is under way
A new season of guided walks led by the Foragers and departing from St Albans and London is under way, showing budding wild food enthusiasts what’s good to eat in the hedgerows before heading back to The Verulam Arms in St Albans to sample some of the finds, such as wild garlic. The group has a range of expeditions available.
Another option is Saturday ‘foraging walks and feasts’ involving a whistle-stop tour of the tastiest treats in Herts hedgerows before a meal prepared from what has been collected.
A variation on the theme is the ‘Wild Booze River Walk’ with participants taking a stroll along the banks of the Ver with the Foragers, tasting tipples that can be made from wild plants. These Friday outings from 4-6pm end at The Verulam Arms for more drinks or dinner. Forthcoming dates are May 10, 17, 24 and 31 and June 7, 14, 21 and 28. See the-foragers.com
