May Bank Holiday is on its way and already two of the Polestars team have taken their own personal pilgrimages to the Cotswolds to indulge in the delights of Farmers’ Markets, Car Boot Sales and, most importantly, a spot of foraging.
As you probably all know by now, we are big hippies in the Polestars office who love anything that is wild or foraged. We also have a taste for alcohol, which is why we think it is fantastic that foraged cocktails are becoming more and more popular across the UK.

Whilst writing my first wild food blog I started to think about luxury camping, or Glamping as we like to call it. And so I decided to compile a list of easy to find and identify foods to collect from the nature for a camper, rather than for a wild food enthusiast.
I have become a bit of a wild food nut of late, I am by no means an expert; about 10 years ago my wife and I bought a VW camper van, meaning we did more and more camping. This lead to more and more camp cooking, which in turn led me to get excited about the ingredients.
