Forage, Harvest, Feast with Marie Viljoen

  • Stone Acres Farm 393 North Main Street Stonington, CT 06378 (map)

Join us for a feast celebrating the wild! Marie Viljoen is a writer, cook, kitchen gardener and New York City forager who is coming to Stone Acres Farm to co-host a dinner inspired by her book "Forage, Harvest, Feast." Cooking alongside Marie will be our chef James Wayman, avid forager who passionately studies wild plants and edibles. Enjoy multiple dishes and cocktail pairing around the Fire Beast, our outdoor hearth and grill, and go home with a copy of Marie's book, "Forage, Harvest, Feast."

"Eating wild food, Viljoen reminds us, is a radical act of remembering and honoring our shared heritage. Led by a quest for exceptional flavor and ecologically sound harvesting, she tames the feral kitchen, making it recognizable and welcoming to regular cooks."

Multiple dishes and cocktail pairing enjoyed OUTDOORS, weather permitting, around the Fire Beast. Tickets include a copy of the book, tax, and gratuity.
