"Wild Food" Mary Bulfin, is our renowned botanical guide and food expert, supported by Bonnie from the Crookedwood House Kitchen. Mary has vast experience in foraging and cooking, and has been featured on The Irish Times, and RTE's Lords and Ladles and Dermot's Secret Garden. She conducts sold-out foraging workshops all over Ireland, and we are delighted to be bringing her expertise to Crookedwood House!

Here's what Mary has to say about her fascinating work:

With a background in science, chefing, and natural medicine, foraging has been part of my life since I could walk and accompany my granny on woodland strolls. My mum also taught me so much about nature, and we were brought up on a very healthy varied diet which included plenty of wild food, from rabbit and pigeon to mushrooms and watercress. Having identified and collected your bounty next step is to use it. I have lots of recipes and ideas.....
