Traverse Magazine | A Foraged Feast in Northern Michigan

Traverse Magazine Foraging Northern Michigan Issue

A Sumptuous Northern Michigan Table

Last spring Melissa Conradie and Amy Kate brought together a team of Northern Michigan vendors to gather ingredients, create a nature-inspired table and put together an incredible meal from the wild food we collected. I’m so honored to have captured this fairytale dinner and to have my photo on the cover of this months issue of Traverse Magazine!

Northern Michigan’s foraged foods are abundant. Growing from the rich soil, we found stinging nettles, cattail shoots, ramps and more. Paul Salvator, a well educated forager, shared some tips with us on finding morels and other delicious wild foods littering the nearby forests. Morels, however, are a rare delicacy that take more skill, or luck, to find than other more common wild foods in the area. Scroll down for a list of all Northern Michigan vendors who contributed and for more photos of this magical foraged feast.

I’m so excited to have my photograph featured on the cover and inside the latest issue of Traverse Magazine. You can also check out the Traverse Magazine’s full article for those foraging tips, some delicious recipes, and a recap with photos from this unique event hosted in Lake Ann at the Cottage Garden Guesthouse.

Happy Foraging!
