Wildcrafting - Wild Food Is Gourmet Food

Program Date: 
Saturday, July 8, 2017 - 3:00pm

We are surrounded by super food and yet, most people have forgotten about the bounty around us and which plants are edible, medicinal or poisonous.  The weeds in your garden may be more nutritious and tasty then what you would purchase at the grocery store. In fact 90% of the plants we can collect for food are non-native/invasive and you can even help the environment by doing so. Pascal will talk about local edible wild food and demonstrate a couple of simple recipes on location. You'll also get to enjoy some yummy wild snack and drink. 
Pascal Baudar is an author, wild food researcher and traditional food preservation instructor located in Los Angeles. His passion is to travel the country and Europe to learn about forgotten food and preservation techniques.
Aside from collaborating for several years with some of the most creative chefs in the country, he has served as a wild food consultant for several TV shows including MasterChef, Top Chef Duels and has been featured in numerous publications including Time magazine, the Los Angeles Times, L.A.
