Thrifty Thursdays - Ben Carter on Truffles

Thrifty Thursdays: Ben Carter on Truffles Thursday 8th February, Hauser and Wirth 6:30pm

As part of Hauser and Wirth’s current Exhibition ‘The Land We Live In – The Land We Left Behind’ – a celebration of our glorious countryside, they are running a series of events called ‘Thrifty Thursdays’ to compliment the main exhibition. Each week there will be guest speakers coming to talk, inspire and teach us their skills, be it fire making, foraging or gardening.  On the 8th of February we are excited to hear that Ben Carter from Wild Resources will be giving a talk on foraging for wild truffles, and yes you can find them here in good old Blighty. Wild Resources is a brilliant organisation that specialise in teaching local communities and chefs the best practices for fishing, foraging and forestry. Everything outdoorsy you name it they know about it. So if you’ve ever fancied being a truffle hunter then join Ben for some top tips on how to find them and what to do with them when you do. Thrifty Thursday’s will be running every week until 3rd May.
