AIR B N B EXPERIENCE – Wild food foraging and feasting

What we’ll do
After an introduction to sustainable foraging, we’ll take in delicious flavors and gather our ingredients, find our kitchen (perhaps a picnic under the trees, a campfire by the beach, a rustic garden, or a rocky mountain outcrop) and prepare a feast with our foraged ingredients over botanical drinks or refreshing fynbos tea.
Where we’ll be
Season dependent, we will explore the wildly delicious edible landscape Cape Town has on offer. We could go to Cape Point to hunt for flavour in the Fynbos and explore edible flower gardens, coastal forage at Scarborough beach or gather mushrooms in one of the Mother City’s beautiful forests.
What I’ll provide
Wild food snacks and drinks, a delicious three course lunch based on ingredients foraged, harvested and prepared by the group. 󴀁
Dietary requirements can be catered for if arranged in advance.
Wild flavoured drinks served with meal. 󲀃
You are welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverage to add to the meal.
All equipment for foraging and harvested will be provided eg baskets, nets, scissors, secateurs etc. 󳀁
Wild flavoured snacks on arrival. 󴀁
