For thousands of years, Indigenous People and early settlers relied heavily on foraging and preserving native plants for their survival. Many of the plants that we now consider weeds were a valuable source of nutrition and powerful medicine for generations before.
As part of THAWfest 2019, Amagansett Food Institute and the Southampton History Museum will co-host this workshop on Native foods led by Chef Jack Formica of Amber Waves will introduce us to a few easily identifiable plants, seaweed, and mushrooms from the region and explain the medicinal and nutritional properties of each species. We will discuss techniques for harvesting and demonstrate a few recipes for preparing these native plants, and everyone will have a chance to taste some of these foods that can be foraged in our backyards and beaches at the end of the workshop. All food samples will be plant-based.
