10th, 11th and 12th April sees me back with the fab people at the Great British Food Festival. Here’s the link.

This Sunday 27th October, I’m taking a walk from Talybont  on Usk as one of the many fab events you can book via….there are still a couple of places available at the time of writing so book with them online if you fancy it. I love this ‘experience’ company! The idea is that everyone benefits, since most of the experiences offered are educational or helpful in some way, with a percentage of the profit going to an appropriate charity. This is the last date I have booked in until next Spring,  but that doesn’t mean that the hedgerows and their harvest simply turn off. There’s still an astonishing amount going on even in the depths of winter…     …and on Saturday 12th October I’m at Hereford Library as part of their H-Energy 5th October…it’s the Neath Food Festival , and I’ll be taking a group of keen autumn foragers out from Victoria Park at 3.30 pm.
