RECIPES & NEWS

Preserving The Autumn Harvest

As we move into autumn, there is always an abundance of fruit and vegetables left over from the hot summer months on the farm. At the Cookery School we are passionate about making the most of the glorious fruits and vegetables from our own Market Garden and ensuring nothing goes to waste. The time-honoured art […]

SEARED LOIN OF VENISON WITH PICKLED BLACKBERRIES, BEETROOT AND CREAMED CABBAGE

FORAGED / FRUIT / HEALTHY / MAIN DISH / MEAT & GAME / THREE WAYS WITH / VEGETABLES / AUTUMN

Blackberries and venison tend to come into season at roughly the same time and in its wonderful way, nature has ensured that they are a delicious match.

In Western cultures we tend to think of iced tea as a very sweet indulgence reserved for the summer months, but a […]

WILD RICE, RED CABBAGE, APPLE AND TOASTED COBNUTS SALAD

FORAGED / HEALTHY / SALADS & SIDES / VEGETABLES / AUTUMN

From mid to late August through to September, we can gather cobnuts, the cultivated version of wild hazelnuts, from the trees around the farm – you have to be quick, though, to beat the squirrels. In season you should be able to find the nuts in shops, greengrocers and markets. If you can’t find cobnuts, […]
