Park Walk | Foraging Tour: Red Berries, Kentucky Coffee Tree, Japanese Mushrooms, Black Walnuts (in-person)


Thanks to its varied habitats and combination of native and introduced species, this world-famous park is a great place for edible and medicinal wild plants and mushrooms in late fall. Herbs, greens, fruits, nuts, and mushrooms will all be in season simultaneously. Tart crab apples will be everywhere, and they're ripe only now, when they appear rotten. Another lemony-flavored fruit is the linden viburnum, a shrub with clusters of red berries that taste like a combination of lemon and raspberry. Another great fruit that is only good at the end of the season, and when it also looks rotten, is the American persimmon. Another "fruit" is the pod of the Kentucky coffee tree whose seeds make great-tasting caffeine-free coffee. You will also find burdock, one of the tastiest and most healthful root vegetables. While most nut trees are already out of season, ginkgo trees will be at their peak as well as the black walnuts. Given enough rain beforehand, you'll find gourmet oyster mushrooms, brick tops, pear-shaped puffballs, and Japanese enoki mushrooms. The tour will last for about 4 hours. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.

Book Discussion | An Onion in My Pocket: The Story of The Vegetarian Movement with The Author (virtual)


Author of fourteen cookbooks Deborah Madison in conversation with food and dining editor of The Washington Post Joe Yonan. Thanks to her beloved cookbooks and groundbreaking work as the chef at Greens Restaurant in San Francisco, Deborah Madison changed the way generations of Americans think about cooking with vegetables. But before she became a household name, she spent almost twenty years as an ordained Buddhist priest, coming of age in the midst of counterculture San Francisco. In An Onion in My Pocket, charmingly intimate and refreshingly frank memoir, she tells her story--and with it the story of the vegetarian movement--for the very first time.
