Foraged Flavor

Ever since Tama Matsuoka Wong brought her foraged finds to the kitchen at Daniel, she and executive chef Eddy Leroux have shared a special partnership. Their collaboration eventually led to a how-to book on gathering wild edibles called Foraged Flavor, which will serve as the inspiration for this event’s menu.
