Swallow Tail comes to RIPE!
VFM is excited to introduce Chef Robin of Swallow Tail Supper Club as one of the local chefs participating in RIPE this year. A self-confessed wild food and wine obsessive, Robin enjoys nothing more than foraging for edibles like sea lettuce, pine mushrooms, and cleavers (to name just a few) to present at her underground supper club. These popular underground suppers, held at various "pop up" locations around the city, are culinary adventures that explore the finer, more exotic aspects of local and wild food.
At this year's RIPE celebration, Swallow Tail plans to present wild mushroom pate on a bed of micro greens along with deep fried root vegetable chips - yum!
