Wild Foods In Our Region

Music + Ideas, October 10th

Chanterelles, morels, fiddleheads, huckleberries, nettle, nori… These are all ingredients we see more of on locavore restaurant menus these days.   They’re all wild foods, foods that aren’t grown in rows but are only found in our wild northwest setting.  More people are getting out to forage for these ingredients recently.  Whether the reason is for the novelty, to experiment with new ingredients or  to get outside, it brings about a conversation about how we relate to our food and the environment it comes from.

Our guests are

  • Valerie Segrest, an enrolled member of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and Community Nutritionist and Native Foods Educator for the Northwest Indian College’s Cooperative Extension Department
  • Jenny Hahn, expeditionist, educator and author of Pacific Feast and Spirited Waters: Soloing South Through the Inside Passage
