Autumn tastings and forays

We’ve got a busy few months coming up now that the mushroom season is hotting up. The ceps have already started appearing and we’re looking forward to visiting our favourite spots on the west coast of Sweden shortly to pick Boletus Edulis – known as Porcini, Penny Bun or Karl Johan, as well as other boletus and leccinums like Birch Bolete. Boletus Edulis,West Sweden, nibbled by deer!Orange Birch BoletePorcini (boletus edulis)

When we get back from Sweden in the beginning of September we have a packed programme of tastings and forays, starting with a double tasting in Chorlton, south Manchester, on Saturday September 13th. We’ll be at Barbakan deli from 11 – 1pm and Epicerie Ludo from 2 – 4pm. We’re also going to be travelling up to mmm-glug in Newcastle and down to Scandinavian Kitchen in London to serve Winter Chanterelle toasties – more details of these and other tastings to follow next month.

If you want to come on one of our half day forays with lunch al fresco we have places left on Sunday 21 September & Sunday 26 October. The cost is £40 including lunch. Saturday 20 September is now fully booked.

New Mills FestivalThe New Mills Festival Funghi Foray will take place on Sunday 28 September – please note we are only taking bookings after September 8. Places are limited so do contact us as soon as possible after that date.

Have a great summer and happy picking everyone!
