Foraging, it has found its way into slow food circles and you'll even see the term on the menus of popular restaurants.

But, What is foraging?

Essentially, foraging takes advantage naturally occurring or otherwise "wild growing" sources of food. To forage would be the act of picking an edible weed or harvesting a wild variety of blackberry, for example. There are even experts who go beyond plant-based foraging possibilities and consider fishing for uncommonly harvested varieties of seafood a form of "sea foraging."
