Eat the Invaders- Chef Dinner at Salmonberry Saloon

Chefs around the world delight in the unlimited ways to use shoots, stalks, leaves, flowers and roots of this plant that conservationists curse.

Chef Andy Catalano of Alimento Astoria will grace us with multiple approaches to this versatile plant. Those who know chef Andy know he can wow through pickling and preserving, combining the freshest local ingredients into tasty dishes, and pulling together amazing pairings through sauces. Chefs from Salmonberry Saloon are on deck to add their touches from the savory to the sweet!

This multi-course meal (with dessert!) will be interspersed with brief talks from Tao Orion, author of Beyond the War on Invasive Species, and leaders from Lower Nehalem Watershed Council and Tillamook Estuaries Partnership who are working to improve our regional ecosystems. Please also consider attending the accompanying book talks in Astoria and Manzanita on Sunday the 7th.
