Foraging Friday and a Pea Lesson

Here's a Food Forever email from Janice, and one of the great photos she took last Foraging Friday, April 24.

Hi everyone,

Things are really getting exciting and I feel like I'm bursting at the seams so thought I'd share some images with you all about the goings on.

This pic is Dora and Gemma "dipping and frying". This was on the first Foraging Friday where we had 6 seniors, 3 parents and 13 kids. Who knew how tasty maple blossom fritters could be?


The Cook Book Group is Up and Running!

Our first meeting as a group was April 15. There are now 15 of us, elders and students, and our main goal is to produce a cook book filled with recipes and stories from Galiano.

With Kenna Fair facilitating, we set up a plan to have the book ready for printing by our deadline - September 2009. Because the cook book will be based on the seasons, we decided to organize ourselves into four research groups of Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall so we can focus on gathering seasonal materials such as photos, art work, recipes and of course, the stories.
