About My Business:


I'm a professional forager in the Los Angeles area. I offer training on local wild edibles and aromatic plants. I also supply chefs (and anyone interested) with locally sourced organic and wild ingredients. My goal is to investigate the culinary applications of local plants found in the wilderness and, through traditional methods or new experimentation, provide unique ingredients and flavors allowing chefs to create exciting, uncommon and flavorful dishes. A good analogy for what I do would be the NOMA Food lab although I specialize in local wild ingredients. I'm also a Master Food Preserver / Food Safety Adviser. A few examples of unique ingredients: • Uncommon wild edible plants, flowers, seeds and fruits. • Salts/Sugars infused with wild aromatic plants (Colors and flavors). • Wild berries or plants verjus • Preserved wild edibles (canned, dehydrated, fermented, etc...) • Unique wild vinegars (Elderberry, Mugwort, Pine etc...) • Gourmet mustards made with wild seeds and home made vinegars • Primitive beers and wines made with local plants (Sage, Mugwort, Nettles, etc...) • Wild aromatic herbs (I.E. Sweet White Clover, Pine, Bidens, Sages, etc...) • Flavorful and colorful powders (I.E. Manzanita, Wild Berries, etc...) • Wild sugars from insects I've trained or provided ingredients to some of the top chefs and restaurants in the Los Angeles (or further) area including Josiah Citrin (Melisse), Michael Voltaggio(Ink Restaurant), Ludo Lefebvre (Trois Mec), Ari Taymor (Alma), Chris Jacobson, Gordon Ramsey and many more... Featured in the media: Time Magazine, L.A.Times, L.A. Weekly, NBC, ABC News, KCET, KCRW, CBS, The Examiner, Pasadena Weekly, Daily Candy, Cooking Wild, L.A. Eater and much more... Wild food consultant for Masterchef Season 4 Additional skills: Professional photographer and graphic artist (print - web - advertising).
