“Many thanks for an absolutely splendid day. I thoroughly enjoyed it all. The menu could not have been better for me and I would like to thank you for adapting it to suit my needs/tastes. The assistants were lovely and I was amazed by how much was achieved in the day and how quickly it passed. The food was indeed simply sensational and hugely appreciated. I shall certainly be telling friends about my super experience at your kitchen and hope to return sometime in the future.” Martin – Simple & Sensational course

‘Kather shows that cooking and eating foraged food doesn’t have to mean munching dandelion leaves while wearing a hair shirt. Thanks to her considerable inventive culinary talent, it can be huge fun and delicious too, as I discovered when I attended the Wild Taste of Spring course at Humble by Nature. Kather’s stunning wild canapes and her roulade of foraged greenery with smoked trout and pennywort filling were gastronomic highlights of my year. I’ll never look at hedgerows in the same way again.’ Clare Hargreaves, Seasonal & Local Food Editor, BBC Good Food

‘I leave the [orchard] course with mounds of user-friendly information (including a recipe from Kather’s Kitchen who produced the fabulous food)’ – pork stuffed with apples, celery and chorizo with balsamic and crab-apple reduction and baked pear pots.  Katie Jarvis – Herefordshire & Wye Valley Life

‘WOW – pop-up hosts!  What a triumph! The beetroot soup was my star dish (I keep thinking about it, velvety and gorgeous), the brûlée my husband’s, but we ate every scrap of the others which were also very, very yummy indeed.’ A pop-up guest at one of our Monmouthshire pop-up dinners
