We first start off with a delicious appetizer- Stuffed Jalapeņos, with morels, cream cheese, bacon bits, and ramps or wild onions.
Then, we have a side-dish of a wild edible plant such as Poke or Nettles, something very unique and delicious.
Wild Mushroom Soup- This is my specialty, many have told me "this is literally the best soup I've ever had!"
Grilled steak, topped with mushroom sauce and finally...
Mushroom alfredo pasta! (Sometimes topped with fiddleheads)
