Tasting The Wild Workshop with Jess Starwood
Jess Starwood, clinical herbalist and forager of wild medicine, will return on Saturday, February 9, for her second Herb Walks workshop in Ojai. Jess is the owner of SunRaven Apothecary in Thousand Oaks, California where she can be found brewing up herbal elixirs, crafting gourmet wild foods, and teaching classes and workshops on medicinal and edible plants and mushrooms. With her lifelong passion for nature and gourmet food, Jess has studied holistic health and herbal medicine for over 10 years and has a Masters of Science degree in Herbal Medicine from the American College of Healthcare Sciences in Portland, Oregon.
This hands-on workshop follows her well-received presentation entitled “Wild Epicure: Infusing Local Flavors and Healing Herbs into Gourmet and Everyday Cuisine for Vibrant Health” at our 1st Ojai Herbal Symposium in November 2018. Her first Ojai workshop was in February 2018.
In this class, you will identify and experience several wild winter plants and mushrooms to be found in Southern California locales this time of year. In the kitchen, Jess will share for the first time her wildly popular medicinal mushroom chocolate truffle recipe and all participants will go home with some truffles they made by hand themselves, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
