IMAC is bringing Wild Edible Foods Expert Langdon Cook to the REACH!

Explore the Pacific Northwest’s mountains and valleys with award-winning author and culinary adventurer Langdon Cook, on a quest to find the region’s most sought after wild foods for the table.

Slides of foraged edibles in their habitat and in finished dishes will have you reaching for your boots, baskets, and sauté pans!

Q&A and book signing to follow. Free and open to the public. Donations welcome.
