Wild Cocktails, wild food foraging Bristol and Ferment, infuse and preserve – 2019

Andy Hamilton - the wild gentlemanWild Cocktails, wild food foraging Bristol and Ferment, infuse and preserve – 2019

For 2019 I am moving into a new home and calling myself The Wild Gentleman  – it seemed to be a fitting name that encompasses all that I do. The Wild gentleman will be concentrating too on just three weekends of courses all in St Werburghs, Bristol (did I just talk about myself in the third person?)  This means that you can get to know where wild food grows in each season and, how it tastes across the year which will really broaden your wild food experience in Bristol.

The dates for each of my wild cocktail evenings, wild food foraging walks and fermentation, infusing and preserving workshops are below along with links to the wild gentleman where you can book.

Wild food foraging walk Bristol

Loved by walkers, foodies & gardeners

Just £35 (or less if you book all three seasonal courses)

Ferment, infuse & preserve  Bristol

Loved by foodies & people with an interest in health

Capture the essence of each season in this most unique workshop. Book on this and the wild food foraging walk and you’ll be equipped with enough knowledge to survive anything that Brexit throws at us.

You’ll learn how to lock in and enhance wild food flavours with food fermentation, make your own gin and other booze infusions or for the non drinker, you’ll be making deliciously flavoured vinegar.
