Hix & Wild
Internationally renowned wild foods expert, author and public speaker Miles Irving is joining forces with Mark this year to create unique and bespoke foraging experiences complete with a home-cooked meal at Mark’s Charmouth house.
The Hix & Wild experiences are available all year round for groups of eight guests and ideal for corporate events and team building, special events or simply an informative fun day out with friends.
Learning to forage gets people doing what was completely normal for our ancestors – engaging with surroundings and seasons to find really nutritious and delicious foods.
A unique experience
You will start the day with a coffee and snack at Mark’s home in Charmouth before travelling to a local spot where Miles and Mark will educate you on the wild edible foods that are growing beneath our feet.
After a morning of foraging, Mark will serve a light picnic or BBQ lunch before heading off to another location for a further afternoon of foraging.
Heading back to Mark’s home with your foraged fayre, guests will then enjoy a 6-course meal with wine, prepared and cooked for you at his Kitchen Table and hosted by Miles.
Naturally, Mark and Miles will be creating each bespoke event around the seasons.
In spring, guests can expect to forage for an array of spring greens, herbs and salads, summer will uncover the world of coastal plants and seaweeds, with wild mushrooms being the focus for autumn.
