Wild Food Chef Demonstration
A delicious path to self-reliance: Join us for a foraging walk, a tasting menu, and wild food recipes.

New Location: Whittier Narrows Nature Center
Saturday, September 8
$60 ($25 youth price for minors accompanied by adult)

Wild food chef Mia Wasilevich and wild food educator Pascal Baudar take you on an edible plant identification walk through the picturesque terrain of the Whittier Narrows in South El Monte, CA, where you'll learn to identify a number of delicious and nutritious edible plants.

After our plant tour, a tasting menu will follow:

1) Bitter lettuce cup with foraged greens, puffed black rice, watercress crema and elderberry balsamic redux

2) Lambsquarter & sage seed crackers, foraged figs brulee and cured California black walnut sauce, burrata, pickled gingered yucca

3) Delicious, naturally sweet prickly pear juice

4) Wild beer sampling made with foraged aromatic plants such as mugwort


Mia and Pascal's work illustrates the bounty of nature. Prickly pears grow in abundance right here in the Whittier Hills and in South El Monte. Our short walk will also take us by wild grape, mugwort, and many edible plants you didn't know were growing just a short walk from home.

Wild plants can be used not only as medicine and supplemental pantry items, they can also be used for your gastronomic flights of fancy! Mia and Pascal will discuss their work in wild food and what inspires their menus. And, you'll take away recipes you can try at home.


Wild Food Chef Demonstration is a part of the Build-Your-Skills workshop series curated by the Whittier Time Bank in support of community self-reliance.
