Med Eds Pt 2: Recanati, Zone Militaire & Home of Lidl!
Ok, so we were supposed to be going to Alcantara Gorge in Sicily. A tourist trap of people funnelled through a rocky gorge for several hundred metres then back to their hotels. Grr. Luckily, fate had its say. The unreliable local bus did not go to Alcantara as advertised, but instead dumped us out unceremoniously…

Mediterranean Eds & Usefuls Pt 1: Comune de Taormina
On my recent trip to Sicily I couldn’t help bothering the local bushes for edible native plants. There’s some that are great for fiber too. It’s just a shame I didn’t have the camp kitchen or I’d have experimented with some recipes. First stop was the local park, ‘Comune de Taormina’. There were some fantastic…
Spring Forage with Tapas Tasters 23rd April
Today’s menu was Jack By The Hedge Pesto, Nettle Falafels & Gorse Jelly as we traversed woodland, water meadow, towpath and riverside. As usual, lovely people, fantastic time! Two people came all the way from Oxford, which was great for my ego…we had 7 adults and one kid. I collected all the greens fresh and…
Wild Kimchi 16th April 2023
I always knew this was gonna be tough to pull off as myself and the kid were coming back from holiday the night before. Actually, it turned out to be one hour before! This was supposed to be held at The Refill Shop, LB, but due to staff sickness, I ended up running it from…
Wild Garlic Tomato Cheese Roll-Ups
Found some more Wild Garlic (Allium ursinum) down at my Mums in Surrey. There’s loads of it there! Under the trees in the park, around the lake, up Dog Poo Walk… I picked some from the nice clean park, as far away from the path as possible to avoid dog poo! Got it home and…
Juniper & Wild Garlic @ Collidge Lake
On me and Mart’s walk at Collidge Lake Nature Reserve, Tring, we found that holy grail of spring foraging, Wild Garlic! (Allium ursinum)… This is a great and really garlicky-tasting spring edible. Look for it under deciduous woodlands before the tree leaves come out. Pick the leaves and roll around a small piece of soft…
