Join author, experienced forager and cook, Fi Bird for a kids event at Edinburgh Book Festival. I have 2 tickets to giveaway for the children’s foraging and cooking session on Tuesday 13th August.
Regardless of whether you live in a city, the countryside or by the coast, Fi will explain foraging for food to children, aged 7 – 10. Supper can be off the land, in other words, free not bought. Fi will demonstrate how to create culinary delights with a selection of the delicious ingredients she has foraged from the wild. Kids will learn the rules of foraging where to forage, when to forage, how to forage and will be amazed at the variety of free food available.
AS a mother of 6, author, and past finalist on the BBC television series Masterchef, Fi has always had a passion for cooking and foraging. She is self taught with an approach to food, based on knowledge of tight budgets and limited time. Dividing her time between the glens of rural Angus and the Outer Hebridean island of South Uist, Fi teaches cookery in primary schools and also finds time to campaign for healthier diets and to write for newspapers and magazines.
Her latest book, The Foragers Kitchen, has over 100 recipes and if you follow Fi’s advice you will find more ingredients growing in the wild than you could ever imagine.
