Foraging Field Trip with Tama Matsuoka Wong

Starts: May 07 @ 9:30am
Ends: May 07 @ 5:30pm
Location: Hopewell, New Jersey

The Gohan Society is taking a field trip to New Jersey! Let’s go foraging with Tama Matsuoka Wong!

Cost: $30

Learn to identify wild greens and their uses with forager Tama Matsuoka Wong, a Japanese American who runs Meadows and More and the author of Foraged Flavor, a James Beard-nominated field guide and cookbook that she wrote with Eddy Leroux, Chef de Cuisine at Daniel and a former recipient of The Gohan Society’s U.S.-Japan Culinary Exchange Chefs Scholarship Program.


Tama will host a group of 10 to 15 members and friends of The Gohan Society, where she will talk about the traditional and new ways that chefs in the U.S. and Japan are beginning to use wild greens in their cooking. After gathering greens, Tama will provide us with some recipes on how to cook them!

The plan is to ride together from Manhattan, or you can meet the group at Meadows and More if you prefer to travel individually. We’ll have more details about the exact times and locations as we move closer to the date.

Lunch will NOT be provided. We will have an open-air picnic, so bring your own o-bento!

If you are interested in going, please RSVP by clicking this link:

The deadline to RSVP is Friday, April 22.

Space is limited; this event will be capped at 10-15 people due to transportation logistics and capacity at Meadows and More for tours. 

Thank you to The Gohan Society volunteer Alexis Sanborn for organizing this with Tama!
