Puck's Plenty Forging Tours is pleased to announce our Forage & Feast Events for 2017. Over the past six years these unique events have served to bring participants a taste of the wild, at the same time promoting local businesses who team with us to create a wonderful culinary experience.

Thanks to Stratford's growing culinary movement our feasts are gaining renown among travel and food writers and are listed alongside some of the best restaurants in our town as shown here in this recent
article by The National Post.

With the new season we are bringing a more diverse choice of dishes, especially in regard to our main courses. Although our assortment of quiches have proven to be a popular item, Puck's Plenty's goal is to illustrate how wild edibles can be inluded into other recipes and how their separate flavours
can enhance and inspire.

Tickets can be purchased through internet tranfer. For more information phone 519-271-3726 or email us at pucksplenty@gmail.com.

$70/per person (HST included)


These events are limited to 24 participants.

***If you have any dietary concerns we can customize
our menus to fit your needs.***
