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 🙂

“Learning from someone as knowledgeable and quietly passionate as James was quite literally a walk in the park and upon reflection he shared so much with us that my curiosity surrounding foraging has upped to the next level and for that I’m really thankful.”
