For the past ten years our Forage and Feast 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. In 2017 Wine and Dine Magazine (Singapore) featured Puck's Plenty's Forage and Feast alongside such world famous restaurants as Noma (Denmark), Parallel 37 (San Francisco) and the Native Restaurant (Britain). Our Forage and Feast Events are listed by Marriott International as one of the "Top 10 Adventures to Have this Summer" while Travel and Leisure Magazine included Puck's Plenty as one of the top foraging spots in the world.


In order to attend these events you must be 19 years or older.

August 31st Forage & Feast


SOLD OUT.

Late August offering feature 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 and amazing wild ginger. After our foraging segment we return to the Forest Motel where a four course meal awaits us, served under banquet tents alongside a lovely lake. Truffle Gouda from Mountain Oak Cheese along with baguettes from The Downie Street Bakehouse will be the opening fare followed by our popular Summer Sorrel and Potato Soup. Our main course will be a Wild Mushroom Bolognese followed by fresh peach pies from The Black Angus Bakery. Locally brewed craft beers and wines from Niagara are also included.

Start time: 9:45 am
Where: Packham Sports Complex
Cost: $75 per person.
