Upcoming Events for July

August ~ September ~ October ~ November


July 20th

15 spots left.


The Beech Rooter

The Beech Rooter was among the new finds of last season. You can find them in deep woods, many growing under Beech Trees, hence the name. One can hardly make a mistake with these fungi because of the plant-like bulbous root at the end of the stem. They have a mild but distinct taste. Quite delicate they sautee up very quickly.

Along with the Beech Rooter we will be foraging for Summer Oysters, Platterful, Coral and Angel Wing Mushrooms. Edible plants: Day lilies, Wild Leek Bulbs, Wood Sorrel, Wood Nettles and more.

"The Woods are very dark and deep. But we have promises to keep . . . and lots to forage before we sleep."

Start time: 10:00 am. Duration: approx. 3hrs
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person

Chicken of the Woods

One of the most beautiful shelf mushrooms in the world, the Chicken of the Woods stands out against a forest of green, its bright orange and yellow coulorings looking somewhat out of place but not quite. For this mushroom's qualities are both culinary and medicinal. Chicken of the Woods acquired its name because of taste. Sauteed or roasted it has the flavor and texture of boneless chicken breast. On the medicinal side Laetiporus Sulphureous has antimicrobial properties against the pathogen. It is also a great source of antioxidants, including quercetin, kaempferol, caffeic acid, and chlorogenic acid AND it contains lanostanoids, molecules that have the ability to inhibit cancerous growths. Bottom line, isn't it amazing something that tastes so good is so beneficial to your health.

We're off to trails 15 minutes from Stratford to find the magic
Mother Nature has to offer.

Start time: 10:30 am. Duration: approx. 3hrs
Where: 1841 Spragues Rd, Cambridge, ON N1R 5S5
Cost: $35.00/person

The King Bolete

At this time of year we are on the cusp where mushroom hunting turns exciting. One of the more highly prized fungi in the Bolete family is The King. The cap has the richest of flavours while the stalk holds many more surprises especially when cooked into soups and stews. Last year, on a newly discovered trail, we found scores of them nestled in the lush green ground cover of the forest. You won't want to miss hunting for these "choice" edibles that will drive your culinary senses wild. Along with the King Bolete we will search for oyster mushrooms, gem studded mushrooms, ash boletes and more.

Start time: 10:30 am. Duration: approx. 3hrs
Where: 1841 Spragues Rd, Cambridge, ON N1R 5S5
Cost: $35.00/person

Wood Sorrel

You can find it just about everywhere. Or so it seems. Forests, fields, lawns and meadows. Its tiny yellow flowers dot the way to a wild herb that adds its own magic to soups, stews, salads and more. Biting into the leaf you get the subtle reminder of citrus. And, like many wild edibles, permeates the dish you are preparing. We'll be gathering these along with Wild Watercress, Day Lilies, Wild Leek Bulbs, not to mention wild edible mushrooms such as Summer Oysters, Boletes, Gem Studded Puffballs and more.

There's a reason Travel and Leisure Magazine listed Puck's Plenty as one of the top foraging spots in the world. Find out why!

Start time: 10:00 am. Duration: approx. 3hrs
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person
