Fat Hen is a Wild Food Cookery school based in West Cornwall. We specialise in teaching cookery with ingredients sourced from the wild.

We use local fish and shellfish, wild meats and wild herbs, seaweeds, vegetables and fruits.

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.

Fat Hen has been chosen as one of the top ten best foraging courses in the UK by Countryfile. And 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?!

So, now you know. Fat Hen was once an important staple crop 2000 years ago, with the leaves being used like spinach and the seeds providing a nutritious grain. It is still cultivated in northern regions of India but treated like a weed nearly everywhere else. Read more about Fat Hen here.
