Organiser of ‘field to fork’ experiences for people who really care about their food. Passionate experts on wild food foraging, local meat and fish, and sustainable living.
As part of the fringe events, Food Safari will be hosting 'A Taste of the Wild' on Wednesday 13 March Wild food expert, and Cambridge resident Jacky Sutton-Adam will give a short talk on opportunities and experiences of wild food foraging in Cambridge and the surrounding countryside.
After the talk there’ll be a chance to enjoy some forager’s soup and home made bread and put any questions about wild food foraging to Jacky.
This is a relaxed and fun event that will give an insight into wild food foraging and will whet your appetite for Food Safari's guided wild food forays in Cambridge with Jacky in May, August and October.
