From Woods to Plate: Foraged Foods of the Pacific Northwest
Foraging is not just a throwback to our hunter-gatherer past. It's a way to reconnect with the landscape whether rural or urban and eat healthy, delicious wild foods. Author and forager Langdon Cook will share his adventures in the field and in the kitchen with a slide presentation.
Copies of his book Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager will be available for purchase at the lecture.
