Tid-Bites: Honest Food Dinner


If you enjoy farm-to-table cuisine, you’re about to have the opportunity to take it even further:

Blogger, writer, hunter, gatherer, and fisherman Hank Shaw will be at Black Cat Farm-Table Bistro on November 1 with a unique opportunity to indulge in a special dinner sourced entirely from foraged foods native to Colorado!

The cost is $65 for a four-course dinner by chef Eric Skokan and a signed copy of Hank’s book, Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast, with an optional paired wine flight for an additional $25.

I’ve been going out periodically this summer with Wendy from Hunger and Thirst for Life, learning about what and how to forage. Within easy walking distance of my suburban home, I’ve found asparagus, cherries, apples, garlic, currants, and many other more unusual foods, and I’ve been stunned by the bounty growing everywhere around me. Even with a baby in a stroller or a sling, I could collect real food—with astounding ease—from my environment. It’s forever changed the way I look at parks, open spaces, and even the ditches along the side of the road.

Reservations are going fast! Call (303) 444-5500 to secure your spot and learn with all your senses about the amazing foods truly native to Colorado.
