In the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, on the historic Royal Mile, Wedgwood the Restaurant has established itself as a favourite in Edinburgh’s bustling restaurant scene. Chef Paul Wedgwood and his wife Lisa opened the restaurant in 2007 based on their vision of the perfect night out – the welcome is warm and relaxed, the dining room is intimate and stylish and the food and wine is expertly crafted and chosen with the highest level of expertise.
Paul Wedgwood, Chef Patron, is hosting a wild foraging tour on Sunday 28th April. Guests will be treated to an unforgettable foodie tour of the Midlothian countryside, where they will discover the secret-world of edible possibilities, before heading back to the big smoke to enjoy a lunch inspired by the morning’s identifications at the restaurant on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile.
Passionate forager and a lover of the outdoors, since he was with the boys scouts, chef Paul will lead a group forage searching out the very best wild seasonal ingredients in the countryside near to his award winning restaurant on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile. Wild foraging is the ultimate in “local” and “seasonal” produce and is guaranteed to reawaken your senses so you gain a greater appreciation of your environment and the provenance of ingredients.
This one-day course offers a unique opportunity to uncover a secret world of natural edible possibilities, allowing guests to discover how to identify edible leaves, fruit and fungi before enjoying a sumptuous lunch inspired by Scotland’s incredible nature larder.
This wild food adventure is sure to inspire lovers of natural, locally sourced produce.
