Foraging in the algarve


"Foraging" - the acquisition of food by hunting, fishing, or the gathering of plant matter.
Have you ever been tempted to get round rising food prices by plundering nature’s larder? When did you last eat a weed - nettle or thistles are a good starting point - let alone turning them into a soufflé, a fritter or gnocchi? And how about telling your friends that you've become a wild food forager, capable of identifying and eating plants like wild asparagus, fennel, chard and pennyroyal, and that you know all about the skills of foraging food from the wild? If that's the sort of thing that rings a bell with your outlook on life then A gastronomia silvestre workshop in the nature reserve of Castro Marim, East Algarve, might capture your imagination...
But perhaps you're looking to cut down on your supermarket bills, as some folks are doing these days, or want a new imaginative flavour-texture twist, or are just plain curious to try a cup of nettle soup?....Anyone for nettle? Nettle anyone?
