The afternoon begins with a guided foraging walk through the woods during which you will learn to safely identify some of the wild plants and fungi that we encounter as we head to the site.
For each event we create a unique multi-course tasting menu featuring the seasonal ingredients that we have gathered from the forest and surrounding landscape. All of the food is prepared in front of our guests over an open fire using sustainably harvested wood from the local area.
Our team will take you on an entertaining journey as we introduce the wild ingredients, carefully selected wines, hand-crafted wild cocktails and share the story of how each dish came to life.
HYPER-SEASONAL tasting DISHES
We never serve the same menu twice. The availability of our ingredients varies from day to day, according to the changing seasons, the weather and the spoils of our foraging team. Our dishes focus on native flavours and the culinary harmony achieved when combining wild ingredients from the same habitat.
TRADITIONAL wood-fired COOKING
The fire pit is the heart of our outdoor kitchen. It connects us with the forest, the ingredients and our hunter-gatherer roots. We embrace traditional, nomadic fire cooking techniques which add a unique complexity of flavour and texture to our dishes. Our guests enjoy an intimate, ringside experience as they eat.
FORAGING, FISHING & HUNTING
Wild animals feed on a natural and varied diet which gives their meat a unique depth of flavour. They provide an ethical source of protein which is 100% organic and free of pesticides and hormones. Most of the meat we use in our kitchen is harvested as a by-product of essential conservation work and crop protection.
WILD COCKTAILS & LOCAL WINES
Each dish is paired with wine, wild cocktails and other infusions designed to compliment the flavours of the food. Our seasonal cocktails are made using spirits and liqueurs which we infuse with native herbs, spices and berries. We use locally produced wines from vineyards in Sussex and surrounding counties.
