Hunt and forage on the Killruddery Estate with Ireland’s premier mycofogist, 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!
We are delighted to have Lisa Cutliffe of Edulis Wild Foods joining us on the day. Lisa is one of the UKs leading foragers with a passion for mushrooms and all the tastes and flavours of wild food. Lisa has a degree in biology and a lifelong fascination with nature and wildlife, She is " interested in all aspects of wild food and medicinals – fruits, fungi, flowers, seeds, roots, barks, leaves, meats, seaweeds, fish, shellfish… everything.
