Crimfeis; Foraging at White Park Bay

Event Information

Expert bakers from the award winning Slow Food bakery in Ballycastle are teaming up with Clare from Feasting on weeds for an immersive foraging walk at the breathtaking location of White Park Bay along the North Coast.

Explore the wonderful variety of spring plants and their culinary uses, as well as sampling a few.

Discuss the bygone eras where our early ancestors would have been doing their own foraging at this ancient site.

Then, the team will lead guests to a cosy nook to enjoy some food, prepared in situ using the plants from the surrounding areas and the season’s most beloved wild plant-Wild Garlic which honours the ancient tradition of Crimfeis.

Additional information:

Free Parking at White Park Bay National Trust car park

To launch and celebrate this prestigious award Taste Causeway are running a programme of events, dining experiences, tours and special menus.   Slow Food stands for Good, Clean and Fair food.  Slow Food was initially founded by a group of activists in Italy during the 1980s with the aim of defending regional traditions, good food, gastronomic pleasure and a slow pace of life. Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people, in over 150 countries that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to the community and the environment.   Slow Food aims to reinvigorate people’s interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.
