Wild food dining experience comes to east London
Wild food foraging has gained a bit of a following recently. Maybe the idea of free fare as supermarket prices soar has naturally become more appealing, or perhaps the notion of embracing our hunter-gatherer roots is just the latest food fad.
Either way, knowing the source of the ingredients we consume seems to be more important than ever.
With this in mind, a new immersive dining experience centred around wild food comes to east London this week.
The Wild Food Kitchen will operate as a pop up from tomorrow until Sunday and bills itself as a dining experience to engross its guests with more than just the fare on their plates. Live music from up-and-coming talent from the city’s busking scene and an art display will be put on and the team prises itself on offering meals using “the best wild and foraged UK produce”.
The project is the brainchild of chef Jimmy Garcia, of the rosette-winning Waterton Park Hotel. After packing in his job as a City broker, Garcia turned his attentions to the prestigious supper clubs of Courchevel in France.

Much of the fare comes direct from Miles Irving, the restaurant’s forager who picks the greens in rural Kent, and game keeper Ian Oliver who hunts the meat in Northamptonshire.
