We have chosen to offer three separate packages for 2019, breaking down our extremely popular Foraging and Foodie experience days that incorporated all three foraging environments. This experience will focus on one of those environments; foraging from the shoreline. Great for families, these experiences are an excellent way of introducing youngsters to the wonderful art of foraging. Another benefit of focusing on one specific foraging element is that I am able to give you a more in-depth explanation, transferring more of my expert knowledge in each session.
We will spend the day foraging fresh maritime plants and a variety of seaweeds from the stunning Pembrokeshire shoreline. We will then return to the kitchen, where I will prepare an exquisite three or four-course dinner, taking inspiration from the foreshore and estuary, using the fresh ingredients we forage earlier in the day.
Once you have booked your experience day, I will send full contact details. You should then contact via email or phone to discuss which time of year you would prefer to join me and let me know of any dietary requirements etc.
I look forward to hearing from you and commencing our unique culinary journey.
“We love Matt’s passion and enthusiasm for the wildlife and landscapes that surround him, and are truly inspired by his creativity and expert knowledge. His ethos of returning to the way our ancestors would have gathered wild produce and incorporating these foods into modern cooking is fascinating. Combining fine dining with education, Matt’s experience days are not to be missed and we are thrilled to be able to offer these unique days out at Discover Delicious.”
My name is Matt Powell. I am a chef, forager and saltwater bass lure angling guide. Fishing and Foraging Wales was created to bring all of my passions together and to bring fishing and foraging enthusiasts the best experience that my skills and the Welsh coast can offer. I want to share with you the places in Wales where you can really escape and leave behind the hardships of the fast-paced lives which most of us face in today’s modern, sometimes crazy and hectic world. The places where you can truly get away from it all, reflect and relax.
We are blessed with natural beauty on our coastlines as well as a richness of wildlife. Learning foraging skills brings you closer to your surroundings and closer to understanding the fragile Eco-systems that are all around us. There is so much we can take and learn from the land and, of course, in a totally sustainable way.
