Foraging at Fischer's

Post Date: 04 Jul 2024

Spend the morning experiencing beautiful flavours found in the wild before returning to Fischer’s Baslow Hall for an exquisite two course lunch.


25th April 2024 9:00 am - 3:30 am

We are delighted to partner with Foraging Forages, named one of The Guardian’s 10 best foraging courses in the UK, to offer guests an exclusive foraging course for 2024. Join our forager Sam for a fantastic morning of discovery in the Peak District, followed by a delicious lunch at Baslow Hall.


Your day will start from 9.00 am at our dedicated location, where you will be welcomed with wild tea and homemade biscuits. Following introductions, we will get into the mind-set of a forager before heading out to one of Derbyshire’s wild spaces to discover the vast array of wild edibles lying all around us. Throughout the morning you will discover the huge abundance of wild ingredients that lie a stone’s throw from the tables you dine at.

Return to Fischer’s at 1.00 pm for a 2-course lunch prepared by our Head Chef Adam Thackery and hosted by our team with a menu inspired by your day, enjoying truly local, seasonal and fresh wild ingredients at their best. Finish your day with a tour around our prolific kitchen garden.
