From Forest to Table:
a Wild Foods Focused Workshop
with Jesse Brownlee
Sunday, May 7th, 2017, 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Ever wonder what in the world stinging nettles are actually good for? Curious as to which wild flowers and greens make the perfect, succulent spring salad? Maybe you’re eyeballing a yard full of invasive plants and want to know which ones make a delightful dish, or what the tastiest parts of our local trees are. Join Jesse Brownlee of Half Wild, LLC for an in-depth exploration of several seasonal delicacies available to local foragers.
This workshop will focus on 5-7 wild edible species- how to identify, harvest, process and feast on what the Northwest has to offer! Participants can expect hands-on experience transforming wild greens, edible flowers, invasive species and native trees into gastronomic delights. The workshop will conclude with the group sampling the fruits of their labor.
