You have the opportunity to learn about the edible plants at Caddo Mounds and cook them up into a gourmet foraged feast!
April 13, 2023, join Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen on a four-hour foraging intensive followed by a foraged feast cooking class.
What's for supper? Mark will teach you to make homemade ravioli stuffed with farmer's cheese served in a red sauce, foraged salad, tea(s), and dessert. The ravioli pasta will be made from scratch, infusing plants into the dough. The farmer's cheese will be made with cedar-infused apple cider vinegar and wood sorrel. The salad will come from whatever is available.
