You would be hard pressed to find anyone from our fair isles who would consider a small leisure centre in the Calder Valley of West Yorkshire as, by definition, an arena of ‘exoticism’.

For the past two weeks we have been hard at work revamping and refitting the kitchen at Forager HQ and today it got its first use when a team of chefs from the HIX group came down for a day of experimentation.

Flux & influx are two highly relevant terms this week.

Grub's Up!

August brings a shift for our wild edibles - driving us out of the fields and towards the water. However, back in the fields there are a few unexplored resources.

This week on my ride home I was overwhelmed by the sweet aroma of Hawthorn Blossom.
