The Wild Food Foraging & Cookery School in Cornwall
 
Fat Hen is a celebration of wild food and cooking and a coming together of people to enjoy the outdoors, to create fabulous food from nature’s humble ingredients and to eat together in great company.
 
They have been chosen as one of the top ten best foraging courses in the UK by Countryfile. And Fat Hen was chosen by the Telegraph as one of the best sustainable living courses in the UK.
 
Fat Hen is also a very common edible plant. Not a lot of people know that. Most assume the business was named after the poultry variety and then wonder what on earth chickens have to do with wild food?!
