This episode of Propaganda by the Seed we speak with Alan Bergo aka Forager Chef(www.foragerchef.com). Alan is a chef out of the midwest who is known for using wild ingredients to create unique gourmet dishes. He has been executive chef and run several kitchens, is the creator for the Apple TV show “Field, Forest, Feast,” and has published a new book, “Flora” which is discussed in this episode. We were struck by Alan’s humility and how much fun we had talking to him about his work.
In this episode we talk about cooking with and storing wild greens, his origin story, cooking with plants that have been labeled “toxic,” and his ethics and thoughts on foraging. For more information on Alan’s work visit foragerchef.com and check out his new book “Flora”
