Hunt and forage on the Killruddery Estate with Ireland’s premier mycophagist, Bill O’Dea. Bill and his team will start with an introductory session. After they have briefed you, you will all go out on the hunt! Once you have gathered your mushrooms, you’ll return to base and take part in cooking your findings . Then, you get to sample your delights!
As in previous years we will have guest experts on the day including Craig Worral of Edible Leeds. Craig is not only a foraging expert but he is also one of the most exciting and innovative wild food Cook/Alchemist’s in the world. From Mushroon essences to vinegars and garums Craig is always pushing the boundaries of taste. We look forward to having him share his knowledge and some of the wild tastes with us on the day.
