We recently took a guided foraging tour in Central Park and were amazed to discover all the different varieties of edible plants growing in all the nooks and crannies of the park. On our little adventure, we found wild plants like wisteria, cattail shoots, sassafras, and chervil.
Our favorite find of the day were fan shaped clusters of gigantic Dryad Saddle mushrooms. We marinated these with field garlic bulbs and tossed them with farfalle, mint and peas for a light pasta salad.
