Wild In SF

The Wild Kitchen

Friday, May 7th from 7:30-10pm


Somewhere in the Mission, SF
(exact location sent the day of the dinner)

Tickets available

The Wild Kitchen is a rambling dinner of wild foraged food, with each course focusing on several wild ingredients. What does that mean? Wild means uncultivated. Human hands have never touched this food until the day of its harvest. We aim to educate people about the amazing abundance of wild edibles in our area, while connecting them with their fellow eaters. 

Each Wild Kitchen dinner is a community affair.  We sit together, eat together, and talk together.  Everyone sits and eats at communal tables, while the forager explains the wild ingredients in the dishes and why we used them. Tickets are very limited, so please sign up soon.

And the menu is:

Tart Wild Ginger Lemonade

How it works:

The exact location is a secret, but will be sent out the day of the event (hint: it's in the Mission).

The meal is $75, and is 8 courses. We like everyone to eat together, so we have one seating a night.  Get your  tickets here, space is very limited:
Because we use the freshest wild foraged ingredients, sometimes the menu changes, but we'll let you know before the dinner.

Drinks: BYOB 

Barter: We're all about alternative economies, so if you have something you'd like to trade for dinner, we'd be up to hear it. 

If you have restaurant experience, either kitchen or floor, and want to help out from 4-11pm the day of the dinner in exchange for some delicious food, please let us know, we could always use help. 

Because of the nature of these dinners, and the expense of getting everything together, we cannot give refunds for tickets with 72 hours of the dinner.
Note for the un-employed: cool job 
alert HERE:

The Wild Kitchen is looking for some long term help. Someone to setup/manage the front of house on a regular basis.  Basically someone cool with a car who knows what they're doing (we'll pay you too!). If this sounds good send us an email. Join us......
