About British Local Food
Foraging for wild food have increased in popularity over the last few years, becoming a desirable skill set as a result of rising awareness about the benefits of eating organic and local fresh ingredients. [What's foraging?]
The mission of British Local Food is to share and promote the sustainable use of those wild ingredients available in the UK and Ireland.
I’ve been foraging for wild food since I was a kid. I still have fond memories going blackberry picking and mushroom hunting with my father at a young age. Growing up in Spain, I had the opportunity to learn about Mediterranean plants; I used to harvest olives, figs, pine nuts and a number of aromatic herbs growing near home.
After moving to England ten years ago, I became interested to find out more about British wild food and have developed a real passion about picking, eating, cooking, preserving and experimenting with wild foods and so I realised that I wanted to share my passion with others.
