My guest on this podcast is forager John Rensten. John lives and works in London, UK but John’s interest in foraging was aroused by learning about edible fungi in the New Forest.
Having opened a successful London gastro pub in 2004, John combined his love of wild food with this venture, becoming increasingly interested in adding wild ingredients to his menus.
Since then, John has concentrated even more on wild foods and, in particular, urban foraging. John has focussed on showing other Londoners what can be foraged under their noses or, as John puts it “hiding in plain sight”.
