Wilder, January 23rd and 24th, is a beautifully balanced long weekend of food, yoga and stimulating talks, curated and hosted by our favourite’s The Pressery and Beehive Place – a Victorian hayloft in Brixton.
Join in the daytime for a yoga class with Ashtanga warrior Francisca Rivas followed by a balanced and nutritious brunch and a series of three short talks on themes including the countryside, wild food, bees (of course) and more. Or arrive later in the evening for a British cookery experience with chef Sam Hodges; who will be using the finest, most exciting British ingredients sourced by independent suppliers from the length and breadth of the country.
A fully stocked Beehive Place bar will be specially created for the weekend, including cold-pressed almond milks and juices for brunch. Matched biodynamic and organic wines, cocktails using herbal infusions and more, will also be available on the night. After dinner, you can join at the bar for some music and dancing.
You’ll also have the opportunity to meet the team behind The Pressery, London’s finest organic almond milk suppliers (we are BIG fans), and the special guests of Wilder; food writer and Jamie Oliver trained culinary creative Anna Jones (another favourite, author of A Modern Way to Eat), and queen bee Jessica Albarn, who studies, in great detail, animal ecosystems and their delicate state in the modern world.
Chef Sam Hodges, formerly of St. John and Soho House, is an advocate of local and seasonal produce: “After a number years working in restaurants, a little tired of some of what I saw behind the scenes there I resolved to, wherever possible, stray from the beaten path and engage with the ethics and issues that underpin the industry. I therefore work with an emphasis on the uncommon and the wild, drawing on Britain’s natural larder of foraged ingredients, and sourcing thoughtfully with ethical awareness”.
