Forage & Feast Wild Boar Stew with Chestnuts
With Autumn only days away we can already feel the crispness in the air along with a certain coolness to the night. These conditions are ideal for the arrival of Fall Mushrooms. Blewits, Lactarius, Velvet Foot, Fall Oysters and more. The surrounding forests trails around Stratford are home to these tantalizing fungi as well as wild plants like Wild Watercress, Wood Sorrel, Wild Pears and Apples. Our morning trek takes us into Nature’s Wild where we search for her bounty. All of this before we return to town for an upscale lunch that includes Truffle Gouda, baguettes, Wild Watercress Soup and, of course, the main dish, Wild Boar Stew. This is a traditional Portugese recipe with chestnuts, braised brussels sprouts, black currants and wild mushrooms. Dessert: A Creamy Caramel Flan.
Your choice of red or white wine from Niagara along with locally brewed craft beer.
