Cuisine

For Erasmus, foraged edible plants and mushrooms are an essential part of beautifying plates, flavouring stocks and reducing food costs on a small, seasonal menu rich in free-range meat and game. 

Foraging

Much of that inspiration comes from Erasmus’ ‘field-to-fork’ ethos. The backbone of the menu is what can be foraged from the surrounding hills, and it’s a rare morning that he’s not out on his scooter, collecting basket strapped to the back, in search of the day’s ingredients

The Kitchen

“At Foliage, anything goes and we build the menu around what’s growing now, what’s available, and we play with that. Working for myself I get inspired by everything around me.” Chris.

The Restaurant

The setting, much like the menu, falls somewhere between upmarket bistro and contemporary farmhouse.
