Wilds of Wicklow Foraging Walk
It’s nearly harvest time! Would you like to discover the art of foraging wild and edible foods such as wild flowers, herbs, walnuts, berries, mushrooms and garlic? Join Niall O’Sullivan and Paul Quinn from Nádúr Collective for a guided foraging walk along Powerscourt River Walk on 14th September at 11am and again at 2pm. Usually reserved exclusively for Powerscourt annual members, the river walk offers natural, unspoilt beauty and this is a great opportunity for members of the public to visit this tranquil, hidden gem.
During this educational two hour walk through one of Wicklow’s most unspoilt locations, you will be shown edible food plants with practical advice on how best to use them at home or in a professional kitchen. From cooking to preserving techniques; the Nádúr Collective will show you the best way to make use of nature’s best ingredients – from your backyard to your dinner table in a unique and informative approach.
With over forty combined years’ experience in professional kitchens and a passion for wild foods, Nádúr Collective’s aim is to get people back in touch with food, nature and nutrition. Niall O’Sullivan is head chef of Isabel’s restaurant on Baggot Street while Paul Quinn is co-owner of the Three Q’s restaurant in Greystones.
