Dig, Cut, Cook, Eat: An introduction to harvesting and preparing wild foods
April 30, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On Sunday, April 30, the Whallonsburg Grange Hall will present “Dig, Cut, Cook, Eat: An introduction to harvesting and preparing wild foods,” taught by Dillon Klepetar, co-owner of Farmstead Catering in Essex, NY. The course will include a field portion and a kitchen portion, beginning with a hunt for nearby wild foods. Participants will then use what is collected, supplemented by local farm products, to collaboratively prepare a lunch feast in the Grange’s commercial kitchen.
The class will take place from noon-4pm, meeting at the Grange before heading out into the woods. Activity includes walking on uneven ground and standing for long periods of time. Participants should be prepared for a variety of outdoor conditions, and should bring gloves, a trowel and a pocket knife. Cost is $15 per person, or $25 per family. Please register ahead of time by calling the Grange at 963-7777 or by emailing email@example.com.
