Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas

I’ve been keeping this quiet since filming in September, but last Monday I appeared on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas on Channel 4! I took part in the ‘Christmas Hamper’ episode of the new series, creating a ‘Wild Winter Feast’ themed selection of items all based around foraged and natural foods. It was lovely to be able to champion wild food and ingredients found around the countryside, and I’m delighted to reveal that I won the award for best hamper!

My items were a sticky wild cranberry & orange cake, spiced elderberry mead, fresh goat’s cheese with chives, seaweed & rosemary crackers and blackberry chutney. The three ladies I ran against provided fierce competition and I’m amazed I managed to win against such a brilliant selection of original and delicious hampers. You can find Tahmina’s Kookcha Afghan jams here, Karen’s amazing blog Larder Love here, and Emily’s Modern Family Food here.

Watch the episode on catch-up here – and if you liked the look of my recipes you can now pre-order my book Food You Can Forage here!
