Sorry for the prolonged silence as of late. I seem to have been constantly busy with work, and writing for magazines.
Tonight I’m meeting with a production company who want to film some basic wild foods for another cooking show. I will see what I can do for them and let you know how it goes.
It’s been very poor in Essex for certain wild foods this year. Hazel nuts are almost non-existent everywhere I’ve been, although they seem more prolific in the surrounding counties.
Sloes and hawthorn berries have really benefitted from the long hot summer, and are much larger than usual, so I look forward to collecting some.
I found a couple of giant puffballs last week, but of course they were a little too far gone at this time of year!
For those of you who are asking me when my courses will be back, the answer is I don’t know just yet, but I hope to have some ready for next spring, we will see. I will add any news I have here when I get some time.
My latest column in the Great British Food Magazine should be out in the shops in the next few days, so please keep your eyes peeled!
Catch you on the trail.
