Thanks to Jessica for sending this one in. Local forager Langdon Cook is speaking tomorrow at Wide World Books and Maps on how to improvise delicious recipes out of wild, foraged foods, particularly those of our region.
Considering the early spring weather we’re having, you’ll be able to try out some of these ideas right away.
He’ll also be talking about his new book, Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager. Cook writes a really interesting blog about his foraging adventures and all things foraging-related.
Here is the Seattle Weekly’s blurb about the event.
Tuesday, February 16th, 7:00 pm, @ Wide World Books and Maps, 4411 Wallingford Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103 (just off 45th Street in Wallingford)
And speaking of foraging, nettles are up early this year. I saw some while out walking the other day but had no bag or scissors. Hope to make it out for another woods walk soon and risk stings to make something delicious.
