Celebrated wild foods expert Alan Muskat, nationally known as The Mushroom Man, will teach a workshop on edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms in Saluda on Oct. 27.
The workshop will take place at “Meanwhile, Back in Saluda,” a bed and breakfast in rural Saluda. A morning outing will be followed by a semi-wild picnic in an outdoor kitchen complete with wood fired ovens.
Participants will learn how to safely find, identify, harvest and prepare wild foods, learn about wild medicines and experience the life of a modern hunter-gather firsthand. Guest will take an easy hike on trails and paths around the property gathering mushrooms and wild plants along the way. Muskat has been featured on The Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods and The History Channel.
After the hike, participants can cook the foraged bounty and potluck picnic foods in outdoor wood fired ovens in the outdoor kitchen at Meanwhile, Back in Saluda.
