Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Liz Knight

Where: Castle Garden Stage - Castle Gardens

 Liz is one of the country's leading wild food experts, teaching foraging courses across the UK and running an acclaimed wild food business from her home in Herefordshire.

Spending her childhood face down amongst the grass looking for bugs, making concoctions from petals, weeds and of course mud; when she was at school she constantly dreamt of being outside eating. As a result, her grasp of French, Algebra and Latin is woeful but her ability to turn a handful of weeds into a delight to eat is legendary!

With a lifetime’s passion for cooking with less obvious ingredients, Liz established Forage Fine Foods & creates a unique range of flavourings from ingredients that grow in our back gardens and the wild.

After many years of people asking, she has finally published her first book this year called 'Forage,' journeying through 50 globally populated edible plants, the book explores the culture and history of our wild food, alongside recipes inspired by the regions of the world where they are most celebrated.
