PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Looking for free cooking ingredients?
Tama Matsuoka Wong is a professional forager and author of Foraged Flavor. This Saturday she’ll be leading a local foraging field trip in conjunction with Terrain Garden Café, in Glen Mills, Pa., to help folks identify and gather edible wild plants.
How did she get into foraging?
“I was not a very good gardener,” Wong (top photo) admits, “so I had a lot of weeds. And I was trying to figure out, well, what can I do with what I have? So I started getting to know the plants that are growing naturally and are low-maintenance — AKA weeds!”
