Description: In this class you will learn to identify, harvest, and
prepare several root vegetables.
Our host owns a 35 acre parcel with mature woods, former pastureland, wetlands, and 2 creeks. We will explore the area and harvest for 2-3 hours, focusing on the fall bounty of root vegetables. Then we will come back to the house where you will learn to prepare and cook what we have gathered. Our main course will be venison stew, loaded with our fresh wild veggies and seasoned with wild herbs and spices. We will also create side dishes and beverages using wild ingredients. Then we will enjoy the meal we have created together. Finally, you will be able to take home a few roots to practice with in your own kitchen.
This class is limited to 12 participants. Pre-registration and payment is required to hold your spot. The class is expected to fill quickly, so register early.
