Wild Feast Potluck

Wild Feast Potluck

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Your contribution of food or drink to the potluck should include some wild ingredients or fresh produce from your garden. This is an opportunity to experiment and try something new. There are many edible weeds in your own yard. However, avoid areas treated with pesticides. Please bring a list of the ingredients or the recipe, so that people can avoid things that they might be allergic to. We plan to be eating at 5:30 pm. Bring your own plate, cup, bowl, utensils, and beverage. Beer and wine is allowed. Entrées from the past have included creamed dandelion greens, savory burdock patties, plantain casserole, daylily bud salad, garlic mustard pesto, venison stew, hickory nut cookies and elderberry pie. A short presentation will be given on eating insects by Diana Beck. She will bring a couple of entrées that include insects, giving you a chance to taste some insect food if you are willing and adventurous. This will be held at the Denevue Creek shelter in Lakeside Park (east end of Harbor View Drive)
