We hired James for part of a hen doo and had an awesome few hours with Him. He knocked up an amazing rose-hip soup that matched our pink nail polish (bonus points) followed by sweet potato and chocolate cake (further bonus points for making chocolate more healthy) . This was all knocked up in a kitchen only fit for a borrower on a canal boat – impressive.

We washed down the food with elderflower champagne and some wild cocktails after foraging on the tow path for drinkable delights! We had a few special requests in our group  – gluten free and non alcoholic – all discreetly dealt with so no one felt left out.
James is very knowledgeable, talented and friendly. We discovered loads about wild edible food, his career, oh & his mum ! He fitted right in with a group of raucous hens. He’s the Brian Cox of the wild culinary world (!!) and comes highly recommended 🙂

“James took me and my young chefs out on a 6 hour forage in Cheshire. His mixture of knowledge, tasters and humour were a great tool to learn. Everyone in the group got something out of the experience. I’ve not only stopped recommending James to people, but I’ve also not stopped recommending foraging. I’m now an amateur forager myself. Thanks James for a wonderful experience.”
