The Food: (The meal alone would go for upwards of $75 per plate in a nice restaurant)

We first start off with a delicious appetizer- Stuffed Jalapeņos, with morels, cream cheese, bacon bits, and ramps or wild onions.

Then, we have a side-dish of a wild edible plant such as Poke or Nettles, something very unique and delicious.

Then of course, fried Morels!

Wild Mushroom Soup- This is my specialty, many have told me "this is literally the best soup I've ever  had!"

Grilled steak, topped with mushroom sauce and finally...

Mushroom alfredo pasta! (Sometimes topped with fiddleheads)


* Assistance with Park Lodging/ or finding a Hotel.

They don't get any prettier than this!
