Wild Garlic Sushi (2)

by Mags Hall

Thanks to everyone who came along to our first Fife Diet Goes Wild at the Falkland Estate on Sunday. We hoped you all enjoyed it as much as us, and if you missed out, don’t worry – we hope to have Mark Williams back with us very soon for some more tasty foraging adventures!

It was inspiring to see just how much food there is around us, especially at this time of year when we’re still waiting patiently for the tender plants in our veg patches to grow and produce their harvest. Have a look at Mark’s Website for lots of information and further resources about the plants discussed on Sunday. In the meantime, here are some photos from the day…

Did you take any good pictures yourself? We’d love to see them! Email them to mags@fifediet.co.uk and we’ll add them to the gallery.

    The photos look great. I love the final collection picture as it lets you see all the plants in more detail. Isn’t nature generous if you just know where to look!
    I can’t wait for the next foraging session.
