                     About the Walks

I approach foraging not as means of survival, but as a cook, imbiber, and kitchen gardener looking for new ingredients and flavors. My emphasis is on both weedy or invasive plants (usually the target of mass-herbicide application), which could easily become commonly eaten and enjoyed vegetables, fruit or herbs, as well as indigenous flora whose unique qualities have been ignored by most cooks. In Forage, Harvest, Feast I offer cultivation tips for growing many of these plants as well as guidelines for responsible harvesting (with hundreds of recipes!).

On forage walks we discuss the do's and don't's of foraging, and we talk about culinary ideas and techniques for unfamiliar ingredients.

All plants - not just edible - are part of our mobile discussion. My goal on each walk is to tune the eye to the green details beneath our feet, so that we see the place where we live with newly appreciative eyes and an expanded sense of context.

My walks are different because I keep groups small, personal, and low-impact. I prefer conversation over a stand-and-shout approach. It is not unusual for new friendships to be forged over the course of a walk and a shared, wild-inspired picnic.

Prospect Park Woodland Walk
20 October 2018
12PM - 2PM

Deep in the woods of Brooklyn we will find edible native plants and weeds (and yes, some acorns, too!). On its edges are mugwort and edible invasives. Come and ramble among the turning leaves and keep your eyes tuned to the possibilities of fall mushrooms like hen of the woods. Our walk will end with a picnic featuring four tastes of a foraged fall and the year's preserves, with recipes from Forage, Harvest, Feast.

Meet up details will be emailed in the week before the walk.

Booking for this walk has closed.

    1. So sorry, Michele, form some reason I did not see your comment. I am sure you can - I recommend calling the bookstore to make sure they include the insert. Otherwise, you can book for one of these walks above (updated).
