Audubon's sixth annual "Wild Feast" potluck will be held at the DeNeveu Creek shelter at Lakeside Park (east end of Harbor View Drive) on Wednesday, Sept. 4, beginning at 5 p.m. The meal will take place about 5:15 p.m.
Please bring your own plate, silverware, small bowl for soups, a cup and beverage (beer and wine allowed), and your food contribution to the potluck. We encourage those who know wild plants to create a tasty dish, salad, dessert or beverage to share with others.
Many recipes can be found on the Internet or even in your own cookbooks. Please bring a label for your entrée, and a list of ingredients to inform someone with food allergies. Recipe copies are appreciated, but optional.
Be assured that past participants have found many of the dishes, soups, etc. to be enjoyable and fun to try. Some examples from the past include: plantain casserole, wild rice soup, creamed dandelion greens, venison stew, salads with wild greens, savory burdock patties, dandelion cordial and wild berry muffins.
For those of you who are unsure of which plants are edible, bring something from your own garden or trees, or a conventional potluck dish.
This event is a great way to meet and socialize with Audubon members and is open to any interested people from the public. After dinner there will be a short presentation by a staff member of Stuart's Landscaping on preparing your yard for winter. If the weather permits, there will be sunset sailboat rides available as well.
