  • Hen Corner

    Email:

    Hen Corner is a little bit of country life in London that brings an oasis of calm to busy routines. We’ve got an overflowing kitchen garden, eleven fruit & nut trees, a growing flock of hens and a few colonies of honey bees. With a shed storing chutneys, preserves and our cider press; we’ve got big ambitions! You may not be as excited as us when we see the first spears of asparagus peeping through, but we know that they’ll be great with a home-made hollandaise… We are trying to live more sustainably and encourage others to with our Courses, Blog and Media Contributions. We often have surplus produce that we are happy to sell on.

  • Philleigh Way Cookery School

    Email:

    Philleigh Way is a purpose-built cookery school based in south Cornwall on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. Bordering the river Fal with the ocean a few miles away this balanced landscape of arable fields, pasture and ancient oak woodland is an inspirational place to learn about food and its provenance. Run by brothers-in-law James Martin and chef, George Pascoe who belongs to the fifth generation of Pascoe’s to hail from Court Farm, Philleigh, Cornwall, their next generation farmhouse cookery style is inspired by recipes handed down over the generations and fantastic local produce available in Cornwall. Their creativity, knowledge and enthusiasm make it the perfect place to reconnect with the land and sea, learn some old and new recipes and cook with some of the freshest seasonal ingredients Cornwall has to offer. The main focus of the Cookery School is high quality cookery courses but is also offers a wedding venue, indoor and outdoor year round dining events and bespoke courses and experiences for corporate and private groups. Utilising local suppliers is extremely important to Philleigh Way, to promote local businesses, to ensure we are using the highest quality ingredients and to reduce food miles.

  • Wild Food UK

    We like wild food. We forage it, harvest it, cook it, dry it, prepare it, store it and eat it. Foraging for us started with a genuine love of the great outdoors and a passion for food, combining both turns our walks in the woods and by the seaside into childlike treasure hunts. We like to share this almost forgotten knowledge and pass it on so that hopefully foraging in the UK can be kept alive for future generations. We hold foraging courses around the UK so that you should be able to find a course near you. We meet at a venue, often a pub, where we will discuss the do’s and don’ts of foraging followed by a gentle two and a half hour walk where we will identify and talk about wild foods and have a few wild food snacks along the way. At the end of the walk we will have a light wild food lunch and answer any questions about wild foods. A list and description of everything we found will then be sent to you to remind you of the various wild plants and mushrooms we discovered on the walk.

    Bray’s Cottage Pork Pies

    Email:

    The team at Bray’s Cottage Pork Pies, based in a flint barn overlooking the wild North Norfolk coast, are famous for making unusually good, award winning, pork pies. Owner, Sarah Pettegree, says her pies are all about flavour and the celebration of great food. In the Spring she forages for fragrant wild garlic in the woods beside the nearby River Glaven. In the winter the pies have festive fig and orange and the summer lemon, parsley and garlic. Besides the seasonal pies they have a year round range which includes onion marmalade pork pies (their best seller), a more traditional pork pie and one with chorizo. Their pies are available from good independent retailers across the UK. They also have a thriving mail-order pie shop and make large celebration pies, with bespoke pastry messages baked on top. Sarah says “Our celebration pies are used for birthday’s, wedding proposals and everything in between, including incredibly funny ones! I love being part of people’s special occasions.” They are also known for their beautiful, multi-tiered wedding pork pies, which have been featured in national and international publications, from GQ to Country Living. They only make one of those a week, so it pays to get your booking in early. And, if you would like to learn to make pork pies they also run pork pie courses, in conjunction with Dr Tim Kinnaird of Masterchef fame’s cookery school in Norwich.
