SOUP & STROLL SERIES  
PLANT ID WALK FOCUSING ON

WHAT'S SPROUTING "THIS WEEK"

What is it?

We'll focus on one or two plants in detail (while identifying other plants in general) and drill down into the taxonomy so that we can be confident in positively identifying the plants (and their look-alikes). We'll also take a fun, conversational stroll and gather some plants and wild herbs to enjoy with our hearty Soup du Jour (soup of the day). Some of what we find may end up in our soup!

 

This is a casual, weekly class (Saturdays) where we'll get in a little exercise, learn to properly ID plants and have a wonderful, communal, little meal together with some surprise snacks. The class is usually 2 hours and the locations will vary. $30 per student

WHAT & HOW
Let's take advantage of the cold crisp winter air and tiny winter greens popping up. We'll take a leisurely plant ID walk and see what's sprouting in nature and then we'll come back to "camp" and rustle up some campfire favorites to warm us up like:

 

-black sage cocoa
-bannock on a stick with wild currant preserves
-we'll see what spring wild greens are available to make a French-style warm, braised salad

-together we'll make some vintage campfire "puddings" that early settlers might have made , savory and sweet

-we'll sample some oyster mushroom ketchup and pickled wild seed condiments and talk about how to make them

 

This class is ideal for adventurous foodies and the curious alike.

 

Feel free to reach out on my Contact Page should you have any questions. Merci and see you soon!
