Nik has been gathering wild mushrooms for the last 20 years during which time he has starred on Sky and Channel 4 TV, hosted Fungi days for Chichester and Emsworth Food Festivals, West Dean Gardens and Weald and Downland Museum. Nik also does an annual whistle stop tour doing cookery demonstrations for Waitrose.
These fun and educational days or weekends allow you to be confident to pick and prepare certain wild fungi.
Days start at 10.30am with coffee and pastries served at 82 Fishbourne, then its of to the forest to hunt!! We usually spend 2 hours then its back to the house for a Mushroom based 3 course lunch. To give you the best day courses have no more than 8 people. A day with lunch is £85.00
Or turn it into a weekend with one or two nights accommodation, two hunts, a lunch and a gourmet supper too. Prices from £145 per person based on two sharing a room.
Hunts are best in September to early November. Although June to August can be good if we get a damp summer.
Please phone or e mail for organised or private hunts
