Come in your jeans and wellies and join us for a rare talk and tasting with Meadows and More creator Tama Matsuoka Wong. Learn how wild plants, even invasive species like Japanese knotweed and wineberry, are higher in nutrients and vitamins and can be healthier for your diet than cultivated crops. Tama will make pine nut ice cream and whole leaf teas – sumac, passionflower and nettle – for everyone to savor.
Tama is the talented forager for renowned culinary destinations like Restaurant Daniel and Gramercy Tavern. She enjoys relationships with the Audubon Society and Slow Food. After more than 25 years as a financial services lawyer at Citibank and Merrill Lynch, Wong launched Meadows and More to connect experts in the field of meadow restoration, botany, and wildlife with people in the community.
She is the author of Foraged Flavor: Finding Fabulous Ingredients in Your Backyard or Farmer’s Market. Copies of her book will be available for sale.
Ticket price includes program, a box lunch and beverage.
