Wild Food Walk - Gourmet vinegars with wild flavors and making Shrubs!

First, let make it clear, we're not going to make shrubs (small trees) but a delicious drink using vinegar-based syrup which was popular in the old days and very refreshing for the coming summer. But we're giving it a twist by using the true flavors of Southern California found in the local wilderness.

During the first part of the workshop, we'll go on a plant identification hike and collect various plants we will use later on to make delicious concoctions

During the second part of the workshop I will show you how to make gourmet vinegars using foraged ingredients. Ever wonder how our local mountains taste like? They're delicious! Together we'll make various infused vinegars using wild gourmet aromatic plants and berries such as white fir, elderflowers, manzanita berries, pine and much more. The same vinegars I create for some celebrity chefs and restaurants in the Los Angeles area.

After that, I'll demonstrate how to make "shrub" - a delicious drink made with infused vinegar and honey but of course we'll do it with a "wild " twist using foraged goodies. Shrubs are fantastic for the summer, they're refreshing, delicious and good for you.

The whole workshop is probably around 3-4 hours.  Bring water, sun protection, take notes, make photos.

We'll meet under the 210 Freeway bridge on Orcas Avenue and start the walk from there.

      Just water, a bag if you want to collect some stuff and sun protection is a good idea :)
