Join the wild foraging and cooking craze courtesy of Fat Hen, whose fabulous array of courses in the far western reaches of Cornwall promise to pique all senses and tastes in unique an inimitable style.

Located in Boscawen-noon Farm in St Buryan toward Lands End, Fat Hen Wild Cookery School presents back-to-nature at its beautiful best as you roam both land and shoreline to hand forage the finest and freshest ingredients before expertly transforming them into a scrumptious feast.

The range of courses is testament to the versatility of the wild food world, where you can sign up for everything from Seaweed Foraging and Cookery to Fish and Shellfish Cookery, Wild Italian Cookery, Game Cookery, Artisan Bread Making and Children’s Cooking Club.

Learn how to identify wild foodstuffs and incorporate them into gastronomic greats as you forage for everything from seasonal herbs and vegetables to roots, fungi, flowers, berries and nuts. Take your wild finds back to the kitchen where you may discover the art of cheese and bread making, fish filleting or game butchery before devouring your delicious efforts in the beautiful barn.

There’s even Wild Food Cycling Days, Gourmet Wild Food Weekends, Foraging Walks (with or without wild canapés!) and Forage, Cook and Feast Days – allowing you to experience a variety of sublime settings while developing a number of culinary skills in the process.

Or why not indulge in one of Fat Hen’s Supper Club or a spot of Private Dining – or opt for a Forage and Feast Day at one of west Cornwall’s beautiful restaurants that currently include St Ives’ stunning Porthminster Beach Café and Zennor’s gorgeous Atlantic-gazing, The Gurnard’s Head?
