I have a headcold and I'm going to use it as an excuse to not write anything new and inspired, but to dredge up some old photos I don't think I showed you.
Snails anyone? We went to a friends for a mini Wildfood Festival. Rules were simple, dishes must be made with as many 'wild' ingredients as possible.
Just for proof when he's 21 - those are snails my boy is eating. He enjoyed them. Mind you, he has also enjoyed eating huhu grubs raw and wriggling too. (Images of huhu grubs here.)
Apparently the fried possum with kumara mash was delicious. Something put me off trying it.....
We also got to sample Kentucky Fried Duck, Pavlova with Manuka Honey and Stewed Loquats, Wild Pork, Venison Pizza, Taro Fritters, and lots of yummy seafood.
It was such a success that our hosts are planning to make it an annual affair. I'm hoping I'm not picked as a judge - judges have to taste everything!
