Drink and cocktail people are starting to get excited about wild ingredients. We shot this wee video of a "foraged mixology" competition in Glasgow. The police turned up during our foraging in the woods near a tower block - apparently its hard to believe that 8 guys with cameras, drills and knives are "looking at flowers"!

Loads to find at the moment. The wall pennywort was a really nice surprise - don't see much of that in Scotland. Lovely, crunchy salad green.
