A Late Summer Masterclass
Facilitator: Daphne Lambert
In this charming masterclass, expert Daphne Lambert will share her skill, technique and know-how in the art of preservation. We will make preserves to enliven dishes, from the abundant harvest that is our late summer gardens, nearby hedgerows, and the great outdoors.
Event time: Wed 16th Sep 2020 at 7:00pm - Wed 16th Sep 2020 at 9:00pm
As summer slips away and the autumn equinox fast approaches there is much to harvest in the hedgerows, woods and garden. This is the perfect time to get creative, and carefully preserve the abundant harvest. Many foods like rose-hips, crabapples, hazelnuts & mushrooms have been gathered to eat since prehistoric times.
Whilst we can only muse about the way our ancestors, over 10,000 years ago, prepared the food they gathered, there are plenty of stories and recipes to share from more recent history.
Stories go hand in hand with food, as does culture. Sowing & harvesting, cooking & eating – food is a rich mosaic of traditions, cultures and ways of relating with each other and the living resources of the earth.
In this masterclass, we will make rosehip syrup, crabapple verjus, hazelnut liquor and a rich mushroom ketchup. These simple methods of preparation that have been passed down through the generations and will give you a store of delights for the winter months.
In the final part of the session there will be a Q&A to look at any particular plant you would like to preserve. You are invited to bring a family recipe or two for a short sharing to close.
The course will be held in real time with the tutors via the Zoom platform. Sign up to this platform is free. You will need a laptop, computer, tablet or a smartphone – with an in-built camera and microphone – and a reliable internet connection. We will provide more information and joining instructions in advance of the first session.
Recordings will be available for 30 days after course close as a way to support all participants in receiving the information.
