A relaxing wild swim followed by a four-course foraged picnic on an empty Kent beach - what could be better?
A proper day out, and only 90 mins from London. Deal is undiscovered Kent. Empty beaches and food to forage straight from the sea.
Go on - shut your eyes and imagine….. You’re swimming in a warm summer sea, looking back at cliffs, and at an unspoiled shoreline that’s brimming with free food. Feeling full of happiness and refreshed from a relaxing swim, you head back to the beach to enjoy a ‘rolling’ beach picnic, entirely created from wild foods that have been plucked straight from the landscape. Think buttery wild leaf tarts, seaweed bread and wild fennel mayonnaise, washed down with rose petal gin cocktails and a canape on the side.
As the tide goes out the foraging begins. Learn how to seek out the coastal edibles, and start to look at seaweed as food. A whole new way to cook greens.
A beach will never look quite the same again.
Open your eyes…. And now, make the day a reality.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
You will be along the Kent coast, from the ancient Smuggler’s highway to sun drenched beach paths overlooked by the White Cliffs. After your swim at around 12pm you'll be given a 4 course picnic.
The food is frankly delicious, and it’s not surprising, Lucia has been foraging for 30 years and in 2011 published a book ‘Eating Flowers’. Go in a day or make a weekend of it. Kent is a fabulous county easily reached by train from London in just over an hour.
