A cracking day at Swinton Park!!! You can not beat a crisp Autumnal morning with the sun in the sky and a woodland full of wild mushrooms.
A walk in the parkland yielded Puffballs, Stumpballs, Amethyst deceivers, Deceivers, Common yellow russula, Charcoal burner, The Blusher, Shaggy ink caps and Yellow cracked bolete. A fine basket full for John Rogers at the Swinton park cookery school to cook up a storm with.
John certainly did all the foragers proud with a 5 course lunch based on local and wild produce.
Estate pigeon with Geranium, Squash and candied walnuts.
Venison forestier, foie, shallots and paris mash.
Recipes will follow shortly…………… Come on John!!
Thank you to all who attended and made the day so enjoyable.
