Food Foraging Day

LobsterWe’ve told you about Sean and Tricia Baxter’s Real Staithes, the walk across the foreshore to learn about the wildlife and industrial heritage. Now we can tell you about a new Food Foraging Day.

Spend the morning with fisherman Sean foraging on the shore collecting samples of edible seaweeds, haul in lobster pots then continue along to the bay of Port Mulgrave where lunch will be served, outside if the weather’s good at their delightfully ramshackled fisherman’s hut. There will be  soup on the campfire followed by a seafood lunch – lobster, crab or other fish with salads, cake and coffee. Veggies are catered for, just let them know.

After lunch it’s time to  learn about your seashore finds. Tricia will identify the seaweeds and explain how to use them and how best to incorporate them into sweet and savoury dishes. She’ll show you how to catch and cook, crab and lobster how to pot mackerel and prepare crab mousse. We promise you, it will be a great day out,

Tuesday 12 August, meet at 10am on Staithes seafront. Price: £50 per head
