book now: fire & wild harvest feastival
As Autumn sweeps in across Sussex, the Fire & Wild team are planning their return, continuing their journey through hidden Sussex on Saturday 29th September. If you’ve already been out blackberry picking then this one’s for you, as you’re invited to join them for their harvest feastival, foraging your way through the forest.
Taking time out is often over-looked as ironically we’re too busy to take time for ourselves, so we’d recommend closing your laptop and putting your phone down for this one, so you can re-connect with nature. We can hear the birds tweeting already. This month, Fire & Wild’s immersive outdoor dining experience gathers guests in a secret woodland for a lesson in gin infusion and a special harvest feast. As you’re guided through the forest, you’ll be foraging botanicals to create your own bespoke flavours. You’ll even take home your own hand-crafted bottle, so it’s the perfect addition to your home bar, or even a Christmas present (dare we say it!).
After a wander through the beautiful woodland, you’ll arrive at their secret camp where you’ll immerse yourself in a wild gin workshop, learning all you need to know to create your own mix. Then the real feast begins, as they’ve designed a unique five-course tasting menu, inspired by the seasonal wild ingredients found living and growing around the table you’ll be eating at. It’s the start of game season and autumn is most definitely in the air, so it’s a great time to get back to nature and join them to hunt, forage and feast! Their menu will take guests through an exploration of Sussex, as you tuck into River, Shore, Forest, Field and Orchard courses that tell the story of the local area. Guests will also be tucking into wild cocktails and paired local wines alongside their fire-cooked food, the ultimate foraged cherry on the cake. See you in the wild!
Saturday 29th September, 11.45am – 6.00pm; £130 (gin workshop, 5-course tasting menu, paired wines and wild cocktails)
Guests will be collected from Lewes station and taken to the secret location
