Foraging Class
Saturday, May 18, 5-7pm

Foraging is a fun way to bring new flavors from the natural world into your home kitchen. Join chef Rob Handel for a guided foraging walk where he will point out some of the many wild edible plants common throughout our region, discussing how to identify them, how to harvest sustainably, and how to incorporate them into your favorite dishes. The walk will be followed by a tasting of several dishes prepared with foraged goods, and attendees will receive recipes to prepare these dishes at home. Rob has been foraging since he was a child, and in addition to being chef and forager at Heather Ridge Farm he’s also president of the Mid Hudson Mycological Association.

The class and tasting costs $35/person. Reservations are required, please call 518-239-6234 to reserve.
