Representing Scotland's creative industries during the Olympics

Handbook of Scotland's Wild Harvests: pre-publication launch at the Big Tent Festival

Be amongst the first to find out why Scotland's only 2-Michelin starred chef, Andrew Fairlie, and Scotland's chef of the year 2011 are so excited about our new foraging manual. It's due for an early launch at the Big Tent Festival, Falkland Estate, Fife on Sunday 22nd July at the Big Tent Festival. The Scottish Wild Harvests Association and Reforesting Scotland will be jointly staging an event at noon. There are plenty of other opportunities at the festival to explore the topic, from guided foraging walks to local, sustainable food at the Fife Diet talk.

If you can't make the Big Tent, you can see editor Fi Martynoga at Blackwell Bookshop, Edinburgh South Bridge on Thursday 26th July at 6.30pm – and Fi will be cooking up a recipe from the book for guests to sample. See you there!
