A gastronomic adventure with the ethicurean

Nestled in the tranquil confines of Barley Wood Walled Garden, the Ethicurean Restaurant stands as a beacon of culinary excellence and innovation.

This September, it opens its gates to a select few for an experience that promises to be a rhapsody of flavours, sensations, and discoveries.

Two exclusive dates: Wednesday, 20th September 2023 and Thursday, 21st September 2023, beckon the most discerning of gastronomes to embark on a journey that will tantalise the senses and expand horizons.

the ethicurean experience

Beyond being just a restaurant, The Ethicurean is an embodiment of a philosophy.

Each brick, each plant, and every dish here tells a story – of respect for the soil, of seasons that shape our produce, and of traditional practices that, when fused with innovation, create magic.

As you walk through the Walled Garden, you’ll witness the synthesis of history and future, wild and cultivated, art and nature.

Limited Tickets

While the heart yearns to share this sensory adventure with all, the promise of an intimate experience limits availability.

A mere handful will get the coveted chance to deep dive into the world of wild and cultivated food plants, making each ticket not just a pass, but a privilege.

At £225, it’s not just an event; it’s an investment in a richer understanding of the nexus between nature and nourishment.

Masters at the Helm: Your Culinary Compasses

Robin Harford: Globally revered for his unparalleled knowledge of foraging and wild edible plants.

Robin’s sessions are less ‘workshops’ and more ‘transformative experiences.’

Delving deep into the realm of sensory botany, he will guide you on how to harness your primal instincts, leading to discernment of flavours previously unknown.

This is not just about food; it’s about forging a deeper, more intuitive bond with the world around us.

Matthew Pennington: As the mastermind behind the multi-award-winning Ethicurean Restaurant, Matthew Pennington stands at the intersection of tradition and innovation.

His afternoon masterclass promises a hands-on delve into the world of ‘no and low’ alcohol botanical beverages.

But that’s not all. Experience the fermentation of foods using the most exotic of botanicals, each with a story, a history, and a burst of flavour.

A Glimpse into Your Day

From dawn till dusk, every moment promises enrichment.

Begin with a guided tour of the famed Walled Garden, where you’ll witness the symbiotic relationship between wild and cultivated plants, where every leaf turned and berry tasted will unlock nature’s secrets.

As afternoon approaches, let Matthew guide you. From concoction to consumption, experience beverages like never before.

And as the sun sets, indulge in an array of fermented foods, each bite a testament to nature’s bounty.

a call to the connoisseur, the curious, and the conservationist

Such events are rare, not by design, but by the sheer depth they offer.

This is not just about food; it’s about a philosophy, a way of life that respects, revels in, and rejoices nature.

So, if the idea of diving deep into the heart of nature, guided by its most ardent admirers and advocates, excites you, this is your moment. Secure your spot. Embrace the wild.

about robin harford

I established my wild food foraging school in 2008, and my foraging courses are listed at the top of BBC Countryfile’s ‘Best foraging courses in the UK’.

I am the creator of eatweeds.co.uk. Michelin chef Richard Corrigen recommended this site for inclusion in The Times Top 50 Websites For Food and Drink.

I have travelled extensively, documenting and recording wild food plants’ traditional and local uses in indigenous cultures. My work has taken me to Africa, India, SE Asia, Europe and the USA.

Occasionally I appear on national and local radio and television.

My work has been recommended in BBC Good Food magazine, Sainsbury’s magazine, The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, etc.

I am also a member of the Society for Ethnobotany and the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland.
