Thorpe Forest is part of the beautiful Thetford Forest and with a mixture of conifer and broadleaved woodland, we expect to find a range of gourmet late Autumn mushrooms.
We’ll meet outside the Forest Holidays retreat. The course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes.
Then we’ll head off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the forest, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some tasty homemade refreshments such as our wild mushroom soup.
We will finish the day off with a light wild food lunch based on what we have found and some homemade treats. All of our food is seasonal, so what we make depends on recent weather and what is around at that time of year.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
