Our presenter is Dave Odd of Odd Produce, Chicago’s only full-time professional forager whose motto is “Eat the neighborhood”.  Dave will teach attendees about the dozens of wild ingredients that can be found in the Chicagoland area.  Attendees will have the opportunity to taste some of the foraged ingredients in dishes prepared by Bell’s culinary team.
