Puck’s Plenty Foraging: Forage and Feast Hen of the Woods Bourguignon
We’re in the early days of Autumn as those tree shadows seem just a bit longer while the rich green of the forest floor begins to fade. Nonetheless there are rich wild edibles to be found on trails only minutes from Stratford. Fall Oyster Mushrooms, Puffballs, Blewits, Velvet Foot and Lipista Irina to name but a few before returning to town where a hearty four course meal awaits us. The menu begins with Truffle Gouda from Mountain Oak Cheese accompanied with slices of fresh baguettes from The Downie Street Bakehouse. Our main course is Hen of the Woods Bourguignon served over mashed potatoes. Dessert will be provided by The Black Angus Bakery while beverages will include locally brewed craft beer and wines from Niagara.
An Autumn afternoon can’t get better than this.
Each participant will receive one Hen of the Woods from Shogun Maitake for their cooking pleasure.
