Wild Foods Dinner

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join forager and wild foods advocate, Katrina Blair, for a meal prepared from locally procured wild foods, as well as wholesome organic farmed items. Katrina will walk to the Telluride Mushroom Festival from Durango (a week-long hike) and collect much of the fare for the WildFoods Dinner on her way. 

You won’t believe how amazing Katrina is! She gave a TEDxTalk called "13 Global Plants for Survival," and is the founder of the Local Wild Food Café at Turtle Lake Refuge. The dinner is sure to consist of delicious and elegantly prepared roots, mushrooms, berries, leaves, seeds and needles from evergreen trees, dandelions, amaranth, lamb’s-quarter, high-alpine bistort and plantain that you’ll have to try to believe. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to meet Katrina and enjoy living food from wild lands. Tickets are limited, so purchase early for this unique event.

Accompanying the meal is beautiful folk music from Free the Honey, a quartet from the Gunnison Valley. www.freethehoney.com
