Emma Gunn is an expert forager, artist and designer based in Cornwall.
For the last 15 years Emma has run foraging walks throughout Cornwall in places such as St. Michael’s Mount, Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Philleigh Way Cookery School, the Potager and Enys Gardens. She has given foraging masterclasses at universities and given talks, inlcuding a TED talk on “A Forager’s guide to surviving an apocalypse!”.
When it comes to edibles, Emma enjoys sharing her knowledge and recipes to tempt people to try for themselves, giving people the confidence to try out foraging and explore the unique flavours that are available on our doorsteps. Coastal and seaweed foraging are two of her favourites and it is her aim to get people hooked!
"I’m so excited to join the team at River Cottage and share my love of foraging. There’s such an abundant source of wild food to be found around the Jurassic Coast and beautiful East Devon, I cant wait to share it with you all."
