If you know of a local foraging expert, have them put on a forage-to-table event for Earth Day, suggested Alan Muskat, CEO of No Taste Like Home. Muskat provides ecotours and foraging expeditions in the Asheville, North Carolina area and partners with six area restaurants that will take customer’s “found edibles” and turn them into a delicious wild appetizer.
“Expert guides lead participants collecting edible wild plants, mushrooms and more,” said Muskat. “That evening, the restaurant prepares guests’ very own ‘catch of the day.’ We call it ‘find dining.’”
For restaurant owners, a forage-to-table event is a great way to educate patrons on your area’s natural resources and provide a way for guests to actively participate in Earth Day.
