Forage to Feast
Wild Edibles Walking Tour & Gourmet Tasting Menu
Join us on Sunday 3 December as we forage for and learn about wild edibles in a guided walking tour, workshop, and dining experience led by one of Australia’s foremost foraging experts, Diego Bonetto.
Through the streets of Paddington surrounding Cement Fondu and into nearby Trumper Park, Trumper Pond and into the glorious surrounding parkland, Bonetto will teach participants about common wild edibles in the Sydney Basin area. From learning how to identify wild plants for soap-making or ointments to using botanicals in cordials and spirits, this foraging experience will reveal how the native and non-native species growing in your garden are used for food, craft and natural remedies. You will discover ways to safely harvest from the urban wild and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals while learning solid skills in plant identification, re-learning old stories and paying respect to public and ancient resources.
Following the walking experience, you’re invited to join Marnee Fox, food designer, stylist, and chef back at Cement Fondu for a curated wild food menu of canapés prepared with the wild edibles from the area so participants can experience the plants they have foraged in their full culinary potential.
Please note: This event is a vegetarian tasting and that some items on the menu do contain eggs, dairy and nuts (not peanuts). Please come prepared to be outside in the summer sun with appropriate weather protection – we will seek to pause for foraging in the shade along the way.
From 3pm. Participants will be contacted prior to the event to confirm the meeting/start location.
Spots are limited! Purchase tickets HERE.
