Gathering wild food from the sea is one of life’s great pleasures, bringing you closer to nature’s bounty and beauty. Walking along the seashore, wading through tide pools and listening to the ocean’s rhythm is an exhilarating way to energize your life and refresh your soul. Not only will you gather wonderful delicacies from the seashore, but you will also explore a vibrant—almost paradoxical world of elegant colors and mysterious creatures.
And of course, we will gather wild foods. Wild foods are natural foods—grown without pesticides or human manipulation. Certainly, wild foods are the most organic of foods. Learning to harvest wild food brings a new twist to home cooking, parties and camping. We are going to break the myth of foraging as some kind of a hunter-gatherer survival training and show you how to create delicious gourmet dishes. You will learn that foraging is very satisfying when you become a gourmet forager.
Each class includes an evening session for planning followed by a day of collecting and preparing a gourmet meal from the sea. Finishing touches for the feast will be assigned to students.
Private group outings are also available, call (831) 458-3648 for details.
