About the event

Acorns, or oak nuts, have remained an important and nutritious food source for many animals, including humans, around the world, for hundreds of thousands of years. The oak tree has sustained human civilization since its inception in countless ways, and acorns are still abundant, delicious and nutritious. Why have we in the Modern West neglected this truly wonderful superfood? How have we in our modern culture nearly forgotten how to harvest, honor and enjoy this incredible gift?

Learn how to identify, gather, process store, and use acorns in the kitchen. We'll cover identification, collection, storage, processing, cooking, and consumption. Delicious homemade acorn snacks will be available for sampling, which may include: breads, muffins, cookies, crunchy nuts, porridge, faux meat, and more! $35 includes all required tools, materials, tuition, and unlimited snacking (this is largely undervalued).
