WILD FOOD WEEK 4–10 April 2015!

Enjoy Berkeley Open Source Food's first public event, a singular culinary experience: delicious local wild and feral foods prepared by Cesar, Chez Panisse, Mission Chinese Food + The Perennial, and Mission Heirloom, some of the Bay Area's most innovative restaurants. Meals will feature foraged greens and ingredients provided by our partner farms and suppliers, Capay Valley Farm Shop, F.E.E.D. Sonoma, Good Eggs, Green String Farm, The Living Wild Project, and Say Hay Farms.

The week starts at 10am on Saturday, 4 April, with a wild food identification walk with The Berkeley Path Wanderers Association. We'll debut our field guide, The Bay Area Baker's Dozen Wild Greens. We look forward to sharing a table and Nature's exuberant abundance, both pastoral and urban.
