Ontario Foraging, Foraging, Wild edibles, Wild Mushrooms, Stratford restaurants, oyster mushrooms, morels
Current trail conditions as of April 19: Fiddlehead trail, bare and dry with more noticeable fiddleheads poking through the pods. Wild Leek and Trout Lily trail, bare and dry. Wild Leeks are about 5" to 6" high while trout lilys and garlic mustard are just beginning to show, that goes for nettles, too.

Our foraging treks take place across beautiful woodland trails just minutes from Stratford, Ontario with the purpose of educating participants in the art of identifying wild edibles and mushrooms, prudent harvesting and, in the end, appreciating their wonderful taste and health benefits.

Outings are available most weekdays and weekends from April through mid November.

Cost: $30 per person.

To reserve your trek phone 519-271-3726 or email us at pucksplenty@bell.net.

May 24th, 2014, Savour Stratford Culinary/Foraging Experience Number Two

Our May 3rd event sold out last month which was quite encouraging. And so, we've decided to hold another event three weeks later, taking advantage of all the edible plants that will be available including morel mushrooms, wild leeks, fiddleheads, marsh marigolds and more. Once again we return to Stratford for a feast of nettle soup, wild leek pie, sauteed fiddleheads with garlic and mushrooms then topping it all off with wild nettle gouda from Mountain Oak Cheese complimented with local beers as well as assorted wines from the Niagara Region. Non-alcohol drinks will also be available including tea from Stratford Tea Leaves.

$45.00 per person.

Where: Meet at the Stratford Dog Park Parking Lot

Time: 10:00 am

This event is limited to 15 participants so book early.

May 4th and 5th, 2014, A Call to Farms A rallying cry to Chefs Stratford

We are privileged to be attending an invitation only event beginning Sunday, May 4th, leading a number of chefs into the forest for wild edibles. "This inaugural event is designed to get Chefs in Stratford to work together, a rare opportunity to learn from our talented community peers. It is also intended to showcase Stratford as a unique culinary community. It will be the first ever community event of its kind in Stratford.

On Monday May 5 a feast will be served in a created dining space with the chefs, media and invited guests."

Puck's Plenty looks forward to attending this exciting, unique event.
