Forager is currently recruiting stagiers
We are looking for chefs to spend time with us, working as part of our day to day foraging operation in the Kent countryside in the south of England. Often being a stagier in a restaurant means doing fairly basic and repetitive task for much of the time. Whereas here, depending on how long you stay you will forage for as many 160 species of plants, seaweeds and mushrooms, work in a wide variety of habitats and also spend time in our kitchen processing plants for storage (e.g. lacto fermenting) and helping us develop new uses for the ingredients. We think a grounding in the harvesting and use of wild ingredients ought to be a required element in any modern chefs training and experience.
We are especially interested in welcoming people from overseas, as we are looking to forge partnerships with people working with wild plants in as many countries as we can as part of our long term goal to help promote wild food on a world wide scale.
Please get in touch with your CV and references and some details of when and for how long you would like to come. We are not presently able to offer any accommodation but hope to be able to do so in the fairly near future --- firstname.lastname@example.org
