WILD COOKING WORKSHOP
WILD COOKING WORKSHOP
S I M P L E S E A S O N A L L O C A L W I L D
A one day cookery workshop focussing on wild, Perthshire and East Lothian ingredients - game, straight from the gamekeeper and foraged ingredients from hedgerow, woodland and meadow.
Preparing, cooking and eating wild game and foraging for ingredients in the great outdoors, is a great way to forge a closer link, a deeper understanding of & respect for, the food on our plates.
We will spend part of the morning foraging for wild herbs and greens around Guardswell for use in our cooking.
During a series of demos and hands on cookery sessions, we will work in pairs to prepare various game - from the process of carefully plucking, dressing and jointing through to different cooking techniques and presentation.
After careful preparation, we will then work together to produce some fabulous, early summer dishes, showcasing game.
We have a small selection of game in season in May: pigeon, rabbit and roe bucks.
All refreshments , ingredients and recipe booklets will be provided on the day and students will get to take home the dishes they have made (please bring a selection of containers for these. Sustainability is something we are passionate about too!)
We will share a delicious, wild, 3 course lunch with a glass of wine during the day!

Alison Henderson and Fiona Misselbrook, have trained, respectively at Ballymaloe and Cordon Bleu and have more than 50 years of experience in the catering and teaching professions, between them.
Based in East Lothian, a great friendship and work synergy developed during their time teaching at Colstoun Cookery School. A synergy based on their shared passion about ingredients - simple, quality, seasonal, local, ingredients, as wild as possible! They also share an infectious enthusiasm to encourage folk to cook and their drive to demystify the whole process is balanced by the joy of cooking and sharing of good food!
