Members' Meeting

This month, professional forager and former chef Jeremy Faber will present a talk on "Wild edibles: From forest to plate." Jeremy will provide a unique perspective on edible mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest, discussing habitat, food pairings, and tips on how best to prepare Washington's wide array of fungal favorites. Jeremy Faber discovered his love for the woods at an early age. After studying forestry at the University of Vermont, Faber attended the Culinary Institute of America to pursue another passion: cooking. Faber later moved to the West Coast and worked his way up through Seattle's dining scene, finally becoming sous chef at the distinguished Herbfarm. While there, Faber returned to the woods to supply the restaurant with his own foraged goods. In 2001, Faber founded Foraged and Found Edibles with fellow chef Christina Choi. In addition to selling at local farmers' markets, the business supplies hundreds of restaurants in Seattle, New York, and Boston with fresh wild edibles from Washington State. A native New Yorker, Faber spends his free time skiing and swooning over his cats, Acadia and Parker.

Doors open at 6:30pm.
