Peter Langlands

Book for an event

With a lifelong interest in the outdoors, Peter spends his time in a wide variety
of environments that present a diversity of foraged foods, from alpine to coastal
locations. After studying natural sciences at Canterbury University and postgraduate
papers in zoology, foraging turned him from a zoologist to an accidental
botanist. Peter now works as one of Aotearoa’s only licensed professional foragers,
sourcing wild produce for chefs around the country, including the innovative
Amisfield, running foraging workshops and sharing his love of the subject through
his social media pages and website @wildcuisinenz. Peter has spent a lifetime
compiling Aotearoa’s largest database of wild foraged species and works with
international foragers on expanding the spectrum and use of wild foods. Peter
continues to discover and explore the abundance of food Aotearoa has to offer, with
his partner from their Ōtautahi Christchurch base.
