Les Hook and Nova Kim - A Wild Food Discussion, Presentation and a Nibble
Join Les Hook and Nova Kim, Wild Gourmet Food and the Wild Food Gatherers Guild, in a Wild Food Discussion covering plants from all around you to plants deep in the woods. Enjoy and be amazed by the samples of wild plants currently available...including, but not limited to, wild watercress, wild leeks, wild ginger, Jerusalem Artichoke slivers (for taste and crunch). Also, share our standby "Chicken of the Woods Rice & Quinoa" dish with recipe handout. This is a treat to eat that just happens to also be Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
Nova and her partner Les bring a wealth of information from their seventy-plus years of experience in wildcrafting and working with forest resources in the Northeast, South and Rocky Mountains. As long-time gatherers, original participants at the New Amsterdam Market, and spirited educators, whether at the Smithsonian, Terra Madre, Italy, Field Trip Leaders & Presenters at the IWEMM-7 Gautemala or Vermont's various educational institutions, you are guaranteed an interesting evening. This couple has been featured in numerous books and articles including the NY Times Magazine, NY Times, New York Magazine, Village Voice, The Boston Globe, Green Living Journal and others plus being featured on NPR's Splendid Table and Weekend Edition/Saturday.
"A Guide to Wild Harvesting & Ethics" and the "Mushroom Identification Aid / Spore Print Card" PDF downloads are included.
There will also be another Wild Food Event featuring this couple on November 24 at Jimmy's No. 43. For information go to http://m.bpt.me/event/509353
