'We enjoyed a wonderful day outside in a beautiful environment with our branch. The 'eating from nature' tour was a lot of fun, the guide knew everything about nature and her passion is contagious! After the foraging we moved on to another fantastic place in the forest to build our own kitchens, guided by wonderful experts. We put down an amazing buffet with our team using recipes and Erik & Karien helping us. It was a very beautiful and sunny day in every way! Karien & co: keep it up!'
We had a very nice afternoon yesterday. I did find out that we are further from nature than before. Smelled and tasted a lot. I didn't know there is a leaf that tastes like macaroons. The high tea later was a great ending. Under the trees in the shade just not eaten everything. So it was very successful.
The wild-picking walk was a lot of fun. The forest near Baarn is beautiful to walk in anyway. The guide showed us what from nature you can use as herbs for cooking, for example. We immediately used what we picked to make our own tea during the high tea at the castle. It was delicious and perfectly cared for. All in all, definitely recommended!
