What you'll learn in this botany class:

Meet the edible indigenous plants of the Northeast that chef Marie Viljoen uses every day in her Brooklyn kitchen to develop a delicious regional American cuisine. 

We'll discuss preparations and recipes using native American plants that have the potential to define a way of eating that speaks to place, such as Aronia, bayberry, black cherry, cattails, common milkweed, persimmon, pitch pine, prickly ash, serviceberry, spicebush, sumac, and sweetfern. A wild-inspired snack will be served.
