Learn how to find, cook and serve wild food
Forage to Feast
Diego Bonetto in collaboration with Marnee Fox
Building on Diego's much-loved weed foraging workshop we are excited to offer up a new Wild Food Stories chapter, taking the food found on the foraging tour to the table.
In collaboration with stylist and food creative Marnee Fox, not only will you learn how to identify the food growing in your own backyard, Marnee will teach us how to use these edible plants in delicious recipes and create a magazine-worthy presentation that will wow your guests at your next dinner party.
Included in this exciting 3.5-hour edible adventure you will:
• Learn to positively identify up to 15 common edible plants found in the local area
• How they have been used for food, craft and natural remedies
• Discover ways to safely harvest from the urban 'wild' and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals
• Free copy of Diego's Foragers Guide, which will help you identify these plants in your own backyard
• A light degustation of delicious foods utilising some of the plants found on your walk
• How you can recreate these recipes for yourself
• PDFs of all the recipes with added notes emailed straight to your inbox
• Marnee will also share her insights into styling your table with foraged plants and how to create the perfect dinner party setting
