Wild Leaf Salad Mix
1 Bag (min. 50g)
Sometimes referred to as sea spinach as looks quite similar to large-leaf spinach. Holds up incredibly well to cooking, with very high nutrient levels.
This native coastal plant is the parent plant of beetroot, sugar beet, spinach and swiss chard. Leaves can be blanched, boiled, steamed or wilted in a littler butter or oil. A lovely side to fish dishes.
Best used as quickly as possible. Refrigerate until use.
In 2003 French chef Blaise Vasseur, having witnessed the influence of wild plants on his native cuisine through chefs such as Michel Bras, asked Forager founder Miles Irving to supply wild plants to the newly opened Goods Shed in Canterbury. This spark ignited a wild food renaissance in the UK. Now, 14 years on, a team of highly skilled foragers are hand-picking wild flavours at their peak, full of vitality which speak of the season. This is ‘hyper-seasonality’- a step up from seasonal eating of farmed produce! With over a decade's experience of supplying the best chefs in the UK, you can expect wild ingredients of the highest possible quality delivered to your doorstep to enrich and enliven your meals. By pairing these super-nutritious and flavoursome wild ingredients with the skills and knowledge possessed by talented chefs, these overlooked treasures have been elevated and put back on our plates.Find out more
