Forage to Feast Northern Beaches- Oct 20
Learn how to find, cook and style wild food
Forage to Feast Northern Beaches.
An edible adventure that sees a collaboration between renowned forager and environmental educator Diego Bonetto and stylist, designer, foodie and weed convert Marnee Fox.
Building on Diego's much-loved weed foraging workshops, the pair are taking the food found on the foraging tour to the table.
We begin with a wander around a local park and beach highlighting the abundance of native and non-native edibles to be found underfoot.
Armed with this re-learned knowledge of species we will then head to a magical table setting that utilizes up-cycled materials.
Here we will indulge in a mini degustation of delicious menu items that embrace foraged ingredients, many of which you have just learnt about.
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
• Hear the old quirky and fun stories from all over the world
• Free copy of Diego's Foragers Guide, which will help you identify these plants in your own backyard
• A light degustation at our beautifully styled long table of delicious foods utilising some of the plants found on your walk
• Learn how you can recreate these recipes and style a dinner party for yourself
• Receive PDFs of all the recipes with added notes emailed straight to your inbox
Marnee will also share her insights into where to source items to style your table and how to utilize foraged plants to create the perfect dinner party setting with upcycled finds and creative table decor.
This is a leave-no-trace event fostering respect and appreciation for what nature offers us.
