CHUCK'S JOURNEY

Monday, March 14

Timiskaming First Nation

  • Episode 10

Married couple Tara and Lindsay invite Chuck to Temiskaming to introduce him to The Wild Basket, an initiative that brings traditional foraging techniques to future generations. Chuck discovers their food-processing unit on wheels, a trailer that facilitates the cleaning and processing of the food they harvest. Chuck and the two women along with a few other members of the community head to the forest to pick forest-fresh nuts, berries, plants and mushrooms to provide for their families and friends. Chuck gets his hands dirty and finds a good amount of lobster mushrooms which they later use to cook delicious mushroom cakes.
