Recently, a crew from the BBC visited The Foragers as part of a special Hertfordshire-themed episode.
Richard and George (and foraging dog Presley) showed presenter Sean some of the tastiest plants from the wild, and some of the deadliest too.
Then the team headed back to The Verulam Arms to make some wild cocktail bitters from foraged herbs, roots, barks and mushrooms. George also cooked and served up a delicious platter of foraged delights including several kinds of locally-hunted deer and a tasty bright green mash.
Throughout the day, The Foragers chatted about how the business came into being, the do’s and don’ts of foraging and some wild plant poetry and folklore. One of our hunters even dropped in to talk about how the hunting and eating of “vermin” deer species such as muntjac and Chinese Water Deer is crucial to the health and diversity of Hertfordshire’s countryside.
The episode will be aired on Sunday 19th November at 18:15pm on BBC1. Tune in!
