Farmer and Grower Series: Session 3 Foraging
Tama Matsuoka Wong is a forager, weed eater, meadow doctor , lawyer and mother of three. For longtime readers of Serious Eats, Tama Matsuoka Wong may need little introduction. Her 2013–2014 Foraged Flavor column offered up sage advice on how to forage and use, among other things, wild sumac, pine, and juniper berries, and her book of the same name—which she cowrote with Eddy Leroux, the chef de cuisine at Daniel Boulud’s flagship restaurant Daniel—was nominated for a James Beard Award in 2013. Wong still serves as the forager for Daniel and supplies other restaurants in New York City, including Agern, Gramercy Tavern, and Dirt Candy, as well as some retail outlets, like FreshDirect and Eataly.
We will hunt for the following nutritious, non-native weeds in the old farm fields. We will learn foraging harvest methods and the some of the best ways to prepare them deliciously.
Bags supplied. Please bring your own clippers.
