Foraging & Cookery Workshops at Miserden

Join the Cotswold Cookery School and expert Cotswold Forager Rob Gould to discover the culinary delights hidden within the Miserden woodland. You will head off to explore just one small corner of the estate together identifying and selecting culinary delights hidden beneath the woodland canopy.

Finds depend on the time of year but also the growing conditions leading up to the workshop, making each forage a unique adventure.  Summer months Rob is expecting to be coming across some of the usual suspects like Hogweed, Stinky Bob (Geranium Robertianum) and Nettles, plus lesser well known finds like Sweet Woodruff, Sorrel, Wood Avens.

If joining Rob for an autumn forage through the grounds of Miserden sounds more like your thing, there will be much to look out for. Amongst other things ending up in the foraging basket, he would hope to find Sloes and Blackberries, maybe some Hazelnuts, Feral and Crab apples, alongside Hogweed seeds and other delicious autumn flavours.

After your foraging adventure you will be welcomed back to The Peach House where you be served a prepared foraged meal by the Cotswold Cookery team. After lunch you will learn how to create a delicious feast from your foraged finds to take home.
