Another chance to hear from Clare McQuillan about all the amazing foraging that anyone can do right here in Belfast, this time with a particular focus on the free food that’s coming into season in the summer.
There’s a taste of Belfast that you might not even know is there. In amongst the parks, on the hillsides, the streets and in your neighbours’ garden, the city is teeming with food. Take a closer look and there are hazelnuts on Donegall Street, pears in Annadale, sea buckthorn along the M2 and puffballs hiding in Stormont.
Join forager and curious cook Clare McQuillan on her journey of identification and experimentation and learn how she makes dandelion delicious. The talk will include a taste of some of the wild urban delicacies available within the city limits.
Clare is a freelance foraging guide and chef based in East Belfast who is interested in experimental tastes, eating sustainably and encouraging others to engage with nature through food.
