FOOD IS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE

Before Farms & Markets, Our Food Came from the Wild.

WHAT IS IT?

The Local Wild Food Challenge is…

A Culinary Competition in which you must forage, hunt, gather, farm and trade
for the ingredients of the dish you enter.

Dishes may be hot, cold, liquid, frozen, raw, marinated, smoked, seared, preserve. ANYTHING!
All entries are anonymous to our judging panel. NO PRESSURE.

A global grassroots organization with members in 150 countries who are linking the pleasure of food with a commitment to their community and the environment.

“To defend biodiversity, we must know it, and to know it, we must explore.
We must let curiosity, exploration and the pleasure of discovery guide us.

Local Wild Food Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for discussion and knowledge.

~ Carlo Petrini,
Founder | Slow Food International
