BECAUSE OF HURRICANE IRENE, WILD FOODS NIGHT IS POSTPONED. We hope all our friends in NYC and at Wild Gourmet (Les, Nova and family) are safe.

Watch your “f-word” and join Favorite Food Friends from Wild Gourmet (just don’t use the “f-word“) for a night to benefit Slow Food NYC and the Urban Harvest programs of good food education for New York City kids. Jimmy’s No. 43 is very excited to welcome back Nova Kim and Les Hook, wild food purveyors and philosophers from Vermont, who will be in the house next Monday, August 29. Begin the night with an a la carte menu of selections (based on availability) such as blossoms, berries, bulbs, greens, herbs, roots, nuts, and mushrooms. Follow up with a ticketed event where Les and Nova will discuss their own Circle of Life philosophy of eating, gathering and living among all the species of this wonderfully abundant world!

This is one of our most popular dinners each season, so be sure to head out post-Irene (the talk is from 6:30 – 7:30, with the kitchen serving up food from 6 p.m. on) and see the more giving side of nature. Just mind your language and embrace the gatherers in the room.
