Off The Eaten Path: Foraging Walk and Dinner

This Saturday, September 15th, in an event that seamlessly blends Guernsey’s Food Festival into the annual Autumn Walking Festival, we invite you to go “off the eaten path” with the Bella’s Head Chef Patricio Filipe and owner Luke Wheadon of Wheadon’s Gin for a special foraging walk and dinner. 

Guests will join Patricio and Luke on a foraging adventure around St Martins from 4pm, exploring the hedgerows, woodlands and south coast cliffs for delicious wild ingredients.  This beautifully scenic environment is where Luke Wheadon collects the rock samphire for his signature gin, and where Patricio sources elements for many of his dishes.

The group will return to explore the grounds of the Bella Luce Hotel at 5.30pm looking for more edible plants, whilst Chef Patricio sets to work turning the baskets of collected ingredients into a wild gastronomic experience.

At 7pm Wheadon’s and tonics will be served, before all are invited to take their seats for a three-course menu featuring the foraged finds from the afternoon.

Tickets for this event, inclusive of guided foraging walk, a Wheadon’s and tonic on arrival and three course dinner are £40.  Booking is essential.  Please wear stout footwear and clothing appropriate for the weather forecast.
