Creating Delicious Meals with Foraged Plants from the Sonoran Desert with herbalist & forager John Slattery (Hands-on)
Although we no longer grind our mesquite beans in metates worn into the Earth, or pit bake our cholla buds, mescal, or harvested mariposa lilies, we can still find unique, intriguing, delicious, and nutritious ways to incorporate foraged plant foods into our day-to-day meals. From vinegars, ferments, and syrups, to pancakes, nut breads, and atoles, John will share with you some of his experience and insights into preparing our local wild plant foods. In this hands-on class, you will learn to prepare acorn meal, saguaro seeds, and other foods of the Sonoran desert to create delicious, gourmet meals at home. Allow your imagination to wander over the local desert and mountain terrain in search of gustatory delights! Class is limited to 25 participants. Please pre-register 24 hours in advance of the class.
