Tasting Counter


Tasting Counter, in collaboration with Tyler Akabane of Mushrooms For My Friends is proud to host this very special event!

The day starts with a 2-hour wild plant and mushroom tour of the Middlesex Fells. Your guide, Tyler, will lead you on a search for what is currently in season, sustainably harvesting the best products to be used at Tasting Counter, where the chefs will take your harvest and turn it into that evening's 9-course tasting menu.

Reserve your seat online and leave your wallet at home. This is a unique opportunity to experience New England's wild bounty and how the culmination of these ingredients creates a unique culinary experience. We look forward to cooking for you!
