From Field to Fork
Residential Courses are approved by the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme and are ideal for those taking their Gold badge.

Residential Courses: Root Campers live and work together, with time equally divided between the field and the kitchen. They engage with local food producers and artisans, and are taught cooking skills that inspire confidence and creativity in the kitchen.

On Demand: Root Camp courses are also available on demand.

Urban Root Camp October 2015, Stepney City Farm, London E1


This October half term Root Camp will be collaborating with Stepney City Farm and The Ginger Pig to provide a course in the fantastic surroundings of a working farm within London, and the unrivalled knowledge of the Ginger pig and their wonderful produce! 

Much in the same structure as our Urban Root Camps we will be working in 2 groups of eight, diving time between kitchen, field and dining table.

We will meet at 9am at Stepney City Farm each morning, and finish at 9pm, tired, full and happy. The course will run for 3 days from 26th October 2015.

Cooking: We will create delicious autumnal meals in our pop-up kitchen, that has been kindly donated by Eat to the Beat. We will explore fast and slow cooking, familiar and exotic tastes and a range of cooking techniques.

Farming: Day One: “All about meat”
We will feed and care for animals of the farm. We will joint, string and prepare chickens plus bone out lamb shoulder for tagine.
 
Day Two: “All about veg”
We will make compost, plant, weed and harvest. We will use excess produce for preserving and prepare the ground for winter.
 
Day Three: “All about wild”
We will forage in the local hedgerows and learn about bees.
 
Evening Talks: We will invite special supper guests to give informal talks on relevant foodie topics.
