Foraging in Dalesford

As a treat for my lovely friend Sarah I thought we'd give foraging a go at Daylesford!
Both of us love rummaging around in the undergrowth, er, that sounds a bit weird but I think you know what I mean.  Anyway, it was a day at Daylesford in Gloucestershire foraging and cooking wild game and fabulous homegrown produce!  I love cooking and I urge all like minded try hard cooks to get away from the normal rat race cooking track and give this a go, it was a fabulous day!

Eeek,  a Muntjac deer... ready for our venison carpaccio!  This is not for the squeamish as the lovely Tom, forager extraordinaire, skinned and filleted our lunch!
The best herb and spice collection ever!
Sarah and I, felt a bit like getting ready for Masterchef!!
Celeriac soup, simply delicious and SO easy... I'd substitute the milk for stock, less rich.
Venison carpaccio with shredded fennel and juniper berries with a light mustard and honey dressing.
We plucked the pheasant then jointed it and cooked this delicious stew and washed it all down with some delicious Daylesford wines from their vineyard in France.

Before we returned home we dropped in to their pub, The Wild Rabbit for a swift nightcap then back home!
