This week is going to be a first for me. Foraging is one of those mystical food arts I’ve somehow managed to avoid all this time; an aversion to mud and fields may have something to do with it or perhaps it’s my choice of living location.
I’ve moved house and with Borough Market five minutes up the road my foraging is often limited to a scour round the market for interesting and unusual things.
However, I’m off to Dorset to The Wild Garlic restaurant to go foraging with Mat Follas, winner of Masterchef 2009. Not only will he be sharing his encyclopaedic knowledge with me but also taking me hand diving for scallops off the coast of Beaminster. A chilly but brilliant treat – I can’t wait, particularly as he’s promised to cook us a spot of supper afterwards!
