Glasgow Foragers - Saturday 27th July @ Clean Plates Cafe

Foraging -  a skill we have been masters at from the beginning of mankind, key to our survival.

Nowadays, with food readily available on every corner and some children not knowing broccoli from cauliflower, how far removed have we become from the food we eat and our basic survival skills?

If you would like to re-discover your inner forager, here at Clean Plates Café we are hosting a foraging event on Saturday 27th July (http://urbanforagingglasgow.eventbrite.co.uk/). Expert forager Mark Williams of Galloway Wild Foods will lead a 2 hour gentle walk during which he will explain how to safely recognise and harvest over 50 different wild foods. Afterwards, enjoy a relaxed 3 course meal based on foods that can be foraged. Highlights include a main course of "Top hat wild spinach ravioli with poached quails egg and chanterelles". All for a bargain price of £40.00.

 "Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food."  Michael Pollan.

What might you find on your doorstep? (Besides Bambi!)
