Introduction to Food Foraging event with Jesper Launder at Manchester Art Gallery
Join the Manchester Art Gallery to celebrate Charles Dickens’ 201st birthday, with an evening of events that link with ‘The Walk to Dover’ by Turner Prize nominee, Spartacus Chetwynd, a contemporary art intervention in our 19th Century Galleries, inspired by Dicken’s novel David Copperfield. During Copperfield’s walk to Dover to find his aunt, he survived by foraging for food. This has prompted us to think about what foraging means today. There will be other Copperfield related activities taking place from 6pm. Plus wild food related items on our Cafe menu.
It’s hard to imagine that winter and wild food might go hand in hand, however wild food expert, Jesper Launder, challenges you to re-think this assumption.
Jesper will introduce you to some wonderfully edible and visually satisfying seasonal wild food delights. From tasty young plant shoots, to edible roots, to health-giving gourmet wild mushrooms, this workshop offers an opening into the fascinating world of ‘food for free’.
Booking is essential for this event. Book tickets through Eventbrite.
Tickets cost £6 each and places are limited
