Wild Food Fandango

Forest to Fork is proud to sponsor our annual Wild Food Fandango. You'll enjoy a full day of music, food and mushrooms!

We are extremely excited about the 2021 event. This year’s competition promises to be one of the largest annual chef-driven food events in Minnesota. We will have many competing chefs from Minnesota, representing a fantastic array of styles, creativity and talents.

Competitors will be selecting from an exciting variety of wild products supplied by Forest to Fork, with additional proteins supplied by one of our great sponsors.

Fandango guests will have a chance to sample from all the chefs and cast their vote for the winning dish along with some fantastic beers, wild cocktails and an incredible musical lineup.

Ingredients for our event are sourced by the professionals of Forest To Fork. Many of our chefs’ choices come from the Minnesota woods and waters and are delivered for their use within 24 hours.

We are excited for people to taste the flavors and textures of a wide array of food items many people may have never experienced. From wild watercress to wild rice—including wild mushrooms, tubers, berries, nuts and greens—you are sure to experience a wild flavor explosion.

Although we love everything wild, chefs do have a few, non-wild, meat/protein choices to utilize as a component in their dishes. Whether you are a vegetarian or a carnivore, the Wild Food Fandango is sure to have something for everyone’s taste buds!

Your ticket covers the cost of all of the delicious tastings by top chefs, wild cocktails and beers and a chance to vote for your favorite dish/chef.

Stay tuned for more information on how to reserve your spot for this incredible, one-of-a-kind food and music festival, where wild ingredients you may have never tried before are a highlight of the event!
