Our Forager

We are delighted to announce a collaboration with James Wood of Totally Wild Foraging. Having been in love with the wild world since childhood, James spent many years developing his skills and knowledge of all things “wild” from mushroom paper to elder berry salt. James is now seen as one of the UK’s top foraging and wild food experts, he’s on a mission to share this knowledge and show people that wild food is not only everywhere, it can taste amazing.

Our Head Chef

A native Yorkshireman, Head Chef Rupert Rowley has previously worked with Raymond Blanc, John Burton Race and Gordon Ramsey before returning to his roots in 2002 when he joined the Fischer’s Team. Rupert has a passion for simple, well cooked food, sourcing the best home-grown and local produce wherever possible.

Foraging Immersion

You will be welcomed with wild teas and coffees as well as scones and wild jams as you meet your professional forager for the day. After introductions we will get in to the mind-set of a forager before heading out to one of Derbyshire wild spaces to discover the vast array of wild edibles lying all around us. Whilst on the forage you will try a vast selection pre-made tasters from infusions to jams, chutneys, salt pickles, syrups, salts and herb mixes before sitting down to light lunch and some bubbles. We will return for an evening dining experience at the kitchen bench inspired by the wild flavours found throughout the day.

Return to Fischer’s and get chance to relax in one of our luxury bedrooms before preparing for dinner at our chefs Kitchen Bench.

Our forager will have already delivered some of the days finds to the kitchen, allowing Rupert the time to have knocked something up super special.
