Appendix VI – Foraging Talk by Forage Fine Foods

If you want to listen to a talk on foraging and get some ideas about flavour combinations that you can put together from your foraging harvests, then Hay Deli at 4:00 o’clock this afternoon, 1st. November, is the place to be.

The lady who runs Forage Fine Foods ( is finishing up her tasting session in Hay Deli with the talk at 4:00 pm. And can I tell you, her products taste fantastic!

I don’t eat ketchup, because I don’t eat tomatoes anymore on account of following the blood type diet and tomatoes are on the no-no list for my blood group, but her tomato-free Hawberry Ketchup means that I can once again enjoy that delectable staple that is found on most people’s condiment racks. I had a little taste of it and it was – Mmm Mmm Mmmmmm! To die for! I’m sure it would go great on a slice of toasted sourdough bread.

And her Rosehip and Horseradish Dipping Sauce – superb! Wait, that’s a non-verb really, isn’t it?. . .  All I know is that mixtures of sweet and tangy and deliciousness are all of what’s in those little bottles. A bit pricey, mind you, but well worth it if you want to treat yourself.

Tired though I am, I’ll be taking a seat there at 4:00 pm sharp! See you there!

Liz’s talk was excellent. She gave a general overview of many of the plants around us that are useful but that we neglect, often out of ignorance. I think the best option would be to join her on one of her foraging trips to get a real feel for what’s out there to be picked and used. You’ll have to wait till Spring, though, because I think we can safely say we are definitely coming into winter now. So get in touch with her if it sounds like something you’d like to do.
