Is anyone hungry?

"Is this how Rick Stein does it?"

Workshop 5 got underway today with our group of young people taking part in an in-depth cookery lesson… the Ice Age way!
On the menu today were a selection of locally sourced fruit and seeds, bread pancakes made from a flour and water dough, and fish cooked on an open fire.
Here is our guide to Ice Age fish cooking…
You will need:
Fresh fish (preferably caught with a bone harpoon from the stream)
A selection of large seasonal leaves (we used comfrey from the gorge)
Some nettle stalks (watch for stings!)
A smouldering wood fire

1. Take the fish a wrap them in the large leaves to protect them from the flames. Tie the fish together with nettle stalks to secure them.
2. Place the fish in the smouldering embers of the fire and cover with any left over leaves (the more the merrier) to keep the heat in.
3. Cook for 15-20minutes depending on the size of the fish.
4. Remove the fish parcels and remove all the leaves. Check that all of the fish is cooked through and enjoy!
