Upcoming Events for July

August

September ~ October


July 21st Forage & Feast


SOLD OUT.

Our July Forage & Feast event features a choice of two main dishes. A light mushroom quiche (this was a favourite at our June 30th event) or wild mushroom and asparagus in a cream sauce over pasta. Top either off with a red or white wine from Niagara or a dazzling ale from Black Swan Brewery. We open our menu with Wild Nettle Gouda from Mountain Oak Cheese coupled with baguettes from The Little Green Grocery. A wild leek bulb soup follows and then we're onto that opening combination for the main course. Dessert features delicious pies from The Black Angus Bakery.

It's mid-summer, a great time to take to the trails where we will collect wild leek bulbs, oyster mushrooms, wild watercress and more. All of this before returning to The Forest Motel where this four course meal awaits us, served under banquet tents alongside a lovely lake.

Puck's Plenty tours has been rated as one of the top foraging adventures in the world by Marriot International and Travel and Leisure Magazine.

Kitchener/Waterloo Foraging

On this day we travel outside of Stratford to the Kitchener/Cambridge/Waterloo area in and around both Langdon Hall and Steckle Woods where rich fertile forests are home to an assortment of wild edible mushrooms. We will be searching out Summer Oysters, Corals and Boletes. Not to mention highly sought after Tooth Fungi such as Lion's Mane and Bear's head. To paraphrase Robert Frost, The woods are very dark and deep but we still have promises to keep. Promises like Nature's wild and wonderful edibles.

Read The National Post article on Puck's Plenty to get a taste of who we are.
Then join us on the trails!

Start time: 10:30 am
Where: Langdon Hall Main Parking Lot
Cost: $35.00/person

The King Bolete

3 spots left

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: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person

Staghorn Sumac

Want a refreshing yet healthy Summer drink? Try Staghorn Sumac. Gather the red flowers (shown here), rub gently to bruise, soak in very cold water for 15 to 20 minutes then strain through cheesecloth. There you have it. A wild substitute for pink lemonade. Another way to enjoy this plant is to make sumac spice or powder. Use it over chicken, fish or rice pilaf. Sumac is available right through until mid Autumn. If you want to test its ripeness wet your finger, rub the plant and taste. If it's tart it's ripe.

All of this can be found on beautiful forest trails just outside of Stratford. Learn the ancient art of foraging with noted naturalist Peter Blush, harvesting other wild edibles such as wild watercress, wild ginger, oyster mushrooms, King Boletes and more.
