Forage & Feast Wild Mushroom Bolognese
Mid August features several types of Boletes including what some call The Wild Porcini. This family of mushrooms is quite easy to identify simply because it has no gills. Instead there is a “spongy” substance that bruises olive to blue when touched. They are quite delicious especially when harvested young. These will be one of the many mushrooms we will forage for along with Wild Leek Bulbs, Wood Sorrel and Watercress. After our foraging segment we return to Stratford where a four course meal awaits us. Our opening course is homemade Hummus from Vincenzo’s Grocery in Kitchener, served with sliced baguettes from the Downie Street Bakehouse followed by Wild Watercress Soup. Our main course will be a Wild Mushroom Bolognese. Dessert: A light peach flan.
Locally brewed craft beers as well as red and white wines from Niagara are also included.
