On Saturday, as part of shadowing for Cracking Good Food, I had the pleasure to assist Wild Food expert Jesper Lauder in his 'Wild Food Foraging' workshop which took place on Chorlton Ees. Jesper can spot an edible fungus or plant from a great distance, and his knowledge proved to be fascinating. I personally felt safe chewing on a Turkeytail and nibbling wild garlic. We returned to base to sample nettle soup and steamed spring leaves and we ate Japanese knotweed for dessert. I could tell by the group involvement that I was not the only one impressed. Quite an inspiring afternoon!
