Foraged Salad with Summer Harvest Raspberry Dressing

I’m careful where I forage – away from dogs, traffic or any potential pollutants, and do make sure you know exactly what you are picking – incorrect identification can have disastrous consequences. Given that ‘every day’s a school day’ why not sign up for local classes across Fife and other regions during Foraging Fortnight, in September, during Scottish Food Fortnight? All activities will appear on so do check it nearer the time, from dining out on foraged tasting menus to collecting your own seaweed under the guidance of experts, there is something for everyone. There will be a cookery demonstration plus lunch at my food studio too in aid of an Aberdour community initiative (tbc) so join in and take a walk on the wild side…

Pickled Cucumber

To make pickled cucumber is easy. Fill a small bowl two thirds full of apple vinegar and whisk in 2 dessertspoons of sugar. Wash and dry half a cucumber. Slice finely and lay in bowl.
