A little earthy, a little woody, with traces of nuts and cream, the rich flavours of mushrooms makes them one of the heartiest ingredients. Mushrooms are also a remarkable crop, growing in the dark with little resources to develop into food that is nutritious and nourishing to the constitution. We make a feast of their season by cooking our favourite mushroom dishes and preserving the rest to enjoy once the last mushrooms have disappeared from the market. We love mushrooms distinctive flavour and versatility. This is an all-rounder workshop where you will learn great ways to cook mushrooms, as well as the essential skills of pickling, drying and bottling to preserve.  


  • Make and take home garlicky pickled mushrooms
  • Make and take home an intensely flavoured mushroom Duxelle to use as a quick stock, a pate or to enrich stews
  • Make and take home a Mushroom salt to season and add depth to anything


  • Enjoy a mushroom feast!
