Wild Dining In The Forest WAITING LIST ONLY

We will be returning to this magical forest near Tyninghame in East Lothian in the Autumn due to popular demand. This was our first location last year and proved to be the most amazing spot to dine under the stars in amongst the tall pines.

The evening starts with a small single malt and the most amazing and thorough mushroom lecture given by the renowned Monica Wilde who is an absolute expert in her field and a larger than life character and happens to be really good friend of mine.

You will then be guided by candlelight to the Forest where the table will be ready for you to enjoy a feast of 7 courses cooked over fire, starting with mushrooms that will have been foraged that day by Monica herself.

This event will also offer accommodation in the Tree Houses nearby at Harvest Moon, where you will be able to wander back after the feast.

There will be a selection of Wild Wine & fizz to purchase.

(Wild Wine contains no additives whatsoever and tastes awesome)

Last year we were all sitting outside, stargazing until 3am.

The Tree Houses sleep 4 and are £50pp

If you wish to have exclusive use of the Tree House the cost will be £250.00

There will be an organic breakfast left in each Treehouse for you to cook up in the morning.

Remember to bring warm & waterproof clothing.

The cost for Wild Dining in the Forest will be £125pp

Here are a few of reviews from previous events.

Jen Rutherford

I did a food/lifestyle styling photography workshop on Saturday with the über talented Amanda Farnese Heath AKA The Mad March Hare and am still buzzing from it! Learning top tips on how to set up great shots from Amanda in our small group was just fantastic - and to top it off it took place in her beautiful home at Seacliff. I could have stayed for a week... it was such a blissful escape (and I really can't wait for your foodie workshop Amanda!) 🙏🏻
Here are a few shots from the day including some items I styled up, now I just can't wait to do more of this with my lovely clients.
Highly, highly recommend this course to anyone who has a product they need to make look pretty for social media/print. Huge thanks again Amanda ✨💛 Jx

Michelle Scott

I attended Amanda's food & styling workshop in June and had the most amazing day. We had a lovely day sharing our stories, learning food prop styling tips and eating delicious food. She lives in an enviable part of East Lothian and her day had such a lovely, relaxed vibe. Would absolutely recommend this workshop to anyone interested in food styling photography - would be particularly useful to those with a product to sell and wants to learn the skills to make that product 'pop' in a social media campaign.

Jo Mcnicol
I spent a fabulous day yesterday with Amanda and a great group of people on a food styling photography workshop. It was a great insight in how to get style food products to get professional shots and get these out onto social media or use in other ways to promote my business. I can’t wait to continue everything I learnt to make my home baking look appealing to Drift customers.

Agnes Pachacz
I had a lovely experience at a food styling photography workshop. Amanda was sharing her experience and talent with us, answering any questions, helping to get confident with styling and photographing food. It was so nice to spend this day with amazing people, working, learning and eating in her lovely garden with the most amazing sea view! Thank you !

Summer Yin Yang Flow

Two and a half hours of Summer bliss!
YIN
Starting with a wonderfully nourishing, releasing and restoring Yin Yoga practice. Mindful long held floor based stretches (3-5 mins), targeting the deep connective tissue, ligaments and fascia of the body, increasing our flexibility, re-balancing our energy, whilst allowing the mind and nervous system to settle down deeply into a calming meditative state.
YANG FLOW
We will then work through a dynamic and strengthening Vinyasa Flow, dancing our way through a set of postures that melt into eachother. Getting the body and energy moving, as we begin to wring out all of our stresses, both physically and mentally. Moving with music, keeping a calm inner strength while we move with grace.

All resulting in a delicious release and ‘letting go’ of those tight held areas of tension we all carry and store.

NIBBLES
There will be healthy Mad March Hare snacks and Super Green juice after the class.

The cost is £30 per person.
16 places only

Wild Dining By Balgone Lake On The Balgone Estate
Jun
9
to Jun 10

Wild Dining By Balgone Lake On The Balgone Estate

Wild Dining by the side of a beautiful Loch on the Balgone Estate will be a very special affair indeed!. Once you arrive you will be guided down a candlelit track to the Lake which is part of a conservation area, where the table will be set for a fun filled evening and a feast fit for a king!

History About The Estate

Since 1700, Balgone has been in the Grant-Suttie family, a wonderfully scenic agricultural estate run on an environmentally friendly basis. The generations have experienced many years of history. Our ancestors were mainly businessmen or military, sadly all that remains is the recently restored mansion house sold to the present owners as a ruin in the eighties and some fascinating books and photographs some of which you can find in the Granary bookcase. All the farmland historically has been tenanted out but in 1959 when my father inherited the estate times had changed, he arrived from Canada to find it badly run down and decided to take the farm back in hand. Gone were the days of the wealthy landowners and we have worked hard to build the estate into a thriving agricultural business, my father built the Granary to allow myself and my family to move into the nearby farmhouse.

We will also be screening a film under the stars, but i'm going to keep this a surprise until you arrive!

This event will be full of magic literally, and there will be the option to stay overnight at The Granary, a beautiful Farmhouse with an indoor swimming pool situated on the Balgone Estate and sleeps up to 10 people.

There will be a selection of Wild Wine & fizz to purchase.

(Wild Wine contains no additives whatsoever and tastes awesome)

If you wish to stay over night there will be an extra charge of £70pp.

An amazing organic breakfast will be served on Sunday morning before you take a dip in the pool, or go for a morning stroll around the estate.

Cost per person for the feast, film and magic will be £125

Please contact me to reserve your seat
