Wild Food Forage Adventure with Alan Muskat

September 8, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

When you think of going “out to eat” what are the first places that come to mind? Woods, forests, rivers? Perhaps at the foot of decaying tree bark? Let America’s leading philosoforager guide you on a woodland shopping spree to gather edible wild plants, wild herbs, and mushrooms as you learn about wild cooking, ecology, folklore, and the meaning of life. “Wild foods,” says Alan, “are a way of feeling at home in the world — we are continually provided for and never alone.” The walk will be easy and all age appropriate. A mouth-watering cooking demo and tasting follows. Enjoy this unforgettable lesson in “find dining.”

$60 (by 8/4), $65 after

More information:

Alan Muskat, stand-up mycomedian, and epicure of the obscure, has been going “out to eat” for over twenty years. He founded the first forage-to-table tour company in the country, launched the first wild foods public education program on the continent, and runs one of the largest foraging tour companies in the world. Based in Asheville, he has appeared in a variety of major media and is the author of Coming Home: Finding our True Nature, Haggadah Vita, and Wild Mushrooms: A Taste of Enchantment. When it comes to bringing out the fun in fungi, he’s the champignon. He’s taught thousands and hasn’t lost a customer yet.
