by John The Poacher in London, England, United Kingdom

About John
John has been foraging in Hackney for three decades, using his expertise to hunt out the best ingredients growing wild right here in London.
He has supplied some of the finest restaurants in the capital alongside many small independent businesses such as breweries, chocolatiers and gin producers. As a trained chef John has a collection of recipes he has developed over the years and now would like to be able to offer his products directly to the public.


Some of the products he would like to bring to market:

Wild Garlic Salt
Wild Garlic Butter
Hawthorn Ketchup
Rosehip Vinegar
Foraged Mushroom seasoning
Magnolia Sherbert
Mushroom Ketchup
Nettle Pesto
Wild Horseradish Sauce

The funds raised will allow John to purchase the necessary equipment to get his prep kitchen off the ground and begin to sell his products online and in local stores.
