Our soup du jour features delicious Nettle Soup followed by wild leek bacon or wild leek quiche from Linley's. All of this rounded out by rhubarb pies from The Black Angus Bakery. Locally brewed craft beer from Black Swan Brewery and wines from Niagara are also included.

All of this before we return to the Forest Motel for what promises to be an exciting meal from the wild. Under large tents next to a lake we will enjoy baguettes from The Little Green Grocery alongside Gouda Nettle from Mountain Oak Cheese. Our soup du jour features a tantalizing wild leek soup followed by fiddlehead galete from Linley's. All of this rounded out by strawberry rhubarb pies from The Black Angus Bakery.

June 30th Forage and Feast

One of the featured mushrooms on our menu is the highly rated Summer Oyster. The delicate fleshy substance renders the perfect texture to any dish. We'll collect these as well as pheasant back fungi (one of the few mushrooms eaten raw), day lily flower buds, wild leek bulbs and more. Then we return to the Forest Motel where a four course meal awaits us, served under banquet tents alongside a lovely lake. Nettle Gouda from Mountain Oak Cheese along with baguettes from The Little Green Grocery will be the opening fare followed by vegan friendly Cream of Mushroom Soup. Our main course will be provided by Linley's while dessert will be served up by The Black Angus Bakery. Locally brewed craft beer from Black Swan Brewery and wines from Niagara are also included.

Start time: 9:45 am
Where: Packam Sports Complex
Cost: $70 per person.

August 18th Forage and Feast

22 tickets left

By mid Summer the Bolete Family of mushrooms are beginning to appear on forest floors. From the smallish brown Ash Bolete to the statuesque King Bolete, they are one of the better "finds" of the mushroom world and are easily identified by their yellowish pours under the cap. The trails are also host to other delicious fungi such as the Summer Oyster, the Giant Puffball and the crown tipped coral. Following our foraging trek we will return to Stratford for a lunch of seasonal wild fare hosted by The Forest Motel. Our four course meal will take place under a banquet tent alongside a beautiful lake. What better way to spend a Summer afternoon.

Included in the menu will be locally brewed craft beer, wines from Niagara and dessert prepared by The Black Angus Bakery.

Start time: 9:45 am
Where: Packam Sports Complex
Cost: $70 per person.

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