The Wild Food Dinner Series is part of the development of a completely new cuisine combining wild food, traditional preservation techniques and gourmet preparations created by Pascal & Mia over years of dedicated study and experimentation. Their work encourages us to rediscover our relationship to our surroundings and what it means to be an Angelino.
June’s multi-course gourmet dinner is the most labor-intensive expression of the work Pascal & Mia are doing. Preparation for the meal includes days of foraging, months of fermentations, hours and hours of separating tiny lambs quarters seeds from foraged plants, the dehydration of cactus parts, frying up of hundreds of little buckwheat flowers. The suggested donation for the dinner reflects our belief that this work is valuable and that the people who are doing this work should be paid reasonably for their time. But there are also much less expensive ways to learn from Pascal & Mia and experience the wild food of Los Angeles. Check out Pascal’s page Urban Outdoor Skills for his very reasonably priced forage walks which include plant identification lessons and often basic preparation techniques. After all, there are no more accessible foods than those we can all harvest for free from the wild!
Have a question about the dinner? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you on June 7, or on a hike with Pascal and Mia in the near future!
