Harvest season in Texas is quite a thing. We’re putting on a 4-course, gourmet dinner at the Czech Out Ranch this October, showcasing all the amazing wild flavors of the Autumn Texas harvest-time!
We’ll have a short plant walk, to talk about what wild foods are currently in season, and then we’ll enjoy a curated, 4-course seasonal wild feast handcrafted to showcase all the wonderful, native flavors of the Texas Hill Country.
These dishes will be one-of-a-kind unique; put together by the amazing Lacie Wall, and we’ll discuss the process of coming up with novel and wild recipes to work with wild ingredients. Detailed information about each dish will be available, as well as copies of my book, “The Cycle of Foraging”, for anyone interested.
–The cost of the dinner is $60/person, and will include wine pairings plus samples of foraged cocktails!
Tickets are available through PayPal @ paypal.me/anaturalplace. Please include a preferred contact method, as directions will be emailed out prior to the event.
This is a limited seating event! Spots will fill up fast so reserve your spot today.
This Spring, March 16th – 17th, Green Valley Gardens is holding a 2-day Wild Foods weekend on their organic, permacultural farm in North Texas.
Comprising over 100-acres, this family farm showcases a variety of sustainable land management practices and a diversity of natural resources. Come enjoy the weekend with us as we celebrate the return of Spring and explore all the amazing foods growing in this beautiful landscape!
Green Valley Gardens was created as a start-up market garden, just North of Denton, Texas. They are active promoters of local farmers markets, and regularly work with other local growers to bring environmentally-conscious, quality food to North Texas. They also work hard educating and sharing their practices with others.
We’ll get to spend an entire day discussing (and harvesting!) edible species of native and wild plants, their implications for food security and sustainability, and how we can work with these resources to grow a healthier relationship with our Land.
Day 2 we’ll turn to the culinary arts and explore all the amazing ways you can turn these Mange Sauvage into High Table fare! Spring is a beautiful time of year in the woods; flowers are blooming, onions are budding and a smorgasbord of other wild foods are on offer. From learning to prepare soup and salad starters to delicious hors d’ouvres and wild entrees, we’ll share our secrets to celebrating and enjoying all the amazing flavors and foods here around us.
Come camp out with us, enjoy some excellent foods around the fire, and experience great fellowship while learning more about how we can work to craft a better way of living, together.
