Foraged and Found at Blackberry Farm

July 20-23, 2014

The Foraging Experience at Blackberry Farms was an extraordinary adventure. Located in the heart of the Great Smokey Mountains, Blackberry Farm opened its amazingly bountiful woods and meadows, kitchens and dining rooms to the exploration and joyful celebration of wild, foraged foods, beautifully prepared then paired with magnificent wines. Many thanks to Chef Joseph Lenn, Robert Mondavi Junior, foragers and guides Jeff Ross & Shannon Walker, and the guests and staff at Blackberry Farm.

"It’s a grand thing to have both parents trust you in nature and to learn to look everywhere. As children, when we swam without our parents, they taught us to watch the alligators sunning on the shore when we got in. If the number decreased, we should calmly exit. "
—Connie Green, head huntress of Wine Forest Wild Foods

"Wine Forest dried wild porcini are foraged during the mushroom's brief season so you can make risotto whenever you want.
Why stock up on imported pancetta and Pecorino - even pasta- when some of the best artisanal Italian pantry staples are made in the U.S.A.?"

"Finding wild foods is "much closer to home than many of us imagine," Green says. "You can pull over and find so many things. I think you just have to open your eyes. If you're looking but you don't see, you're missing a lot that's around you ... it becomes the fine art of recognition, particularly if you're hungry and it's delicious.""

"When Connie Green is asked what she likes about foraging for mushrooms, she quickly turns lyrical. "It's like asking a musician what he loves about music–it's so basic to the heart that it's hard to explain." Green is always careful to arrange permission before foraging on public or private lands."

FERMENT - Why 8 hours of pickle tasting rocked my world

September 9, 2013 by Addie Rose

"Last weekend, Dan and I participated in the fourth annual Good Food Awards' judging event - in the pickle category. We were psyched for this! Not only did we get to travel to San Francisco and taste LOTS of incredible pickles - we also got to meet new pickle people and connect with pickle friends we’ve made at previous GFA events. It was a fantastic experience."

BAY AREA BITES - Modern Day Foraging Comes to SF

"You don’t need to fly to Japan to experience this type of primitive dining. Locally, Americano’s Executive Chef Kory Stewart did the same Thursday night, June 6 during the third annual Wild Foods Dinner at the Hotel Vitale located on the Embarcadero in San Francisco. He and food foraging expert Connie Green, author of The Wild Table, took a food-gathering excursion out to the Sierra Nevada for this experiment."

"The thing I have in common with someone harvesting purslane in a city lot is we're both turning a sensitive, keen eye to the world we live in. I was in New York recently for the first time in 30 or 40 years; I saw things everywhere. I was on a balcony on a 17th floor in Tribeca, and I was picking up juniper berries! They were all over the place.."
