Food Foraging in the Scottish Highlands
Come and spend either two or three days at Boath House; as part of your stay we will take you out into the grounds of Boath House and the local countryside. Charlie will tutor you in how to get the best from your foraging experience as well as showing you how Boath House uses the flower and herb beds. Our first course for 2013 will be from Wednesday 5th to either Friday 7th or Saturday 8th June 2013 and the prices start from £420 per person for two nights dinner, bed and breakfast.
Each day will begin with a leisurely breakfast followed by a chat with Charlie to discuss what the day will consist of. After a morning of foraging, lunch will be served at Boath House followed by a trip to a local supplier then back to the kitchen to discover ways in which to prepare and serve foraged ingredients.
A six course daily changing dinner is served each evening.
