Root Camp has teamed up with Jamie’s Farm to provide new venues for our Root Camps. We’ll be hosted at their beautiful farm in Hereford, set against a backdrop of the Black Mountains, with rolling hills and ancient woodlands. Summer is a great chance to find some lovely foraged ingredients, and we’ll also get to work with the farm animals they have, and in their lovely kitchen garden.

We will spend half our time cooking in a beautiful  kitchen with one of our inspirational chefs. Recipes will be seasonal, economical and easy to replicate – and will include some more ambitious recipes to challenge and inspire! All Root Camp participants will go home with a set of kitchen skills to underpin their enthusiasm for cooking, as well as a booklet of all the recipes they have made.

The other half will be spent outside, working with some of our favourite local growers and producers.  Activities will include some of the following : foraging, working in the kitchen garden, making sausages, curing and smoking meat, carving, butchery, beekeeping and chocolate tasting. We will include a range of ‘supper talks’ from foodie-experts, and if last years courses are anything to go by, these are going to be great.

The programme is work in progress. In the meantime if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us:

*Root Camp will provide a chaperone from Paddington Station, London, to Abergavenny. A bus will meet us at the train station and transfer the group to Jamie’s Farm. If you’d prefer, you can make your own way either to Avbergavenny Station, or Jamie’s Farm itself, in Rowlestone.
