Weed Foragers

The New ‘F’ Word Is Foraging


Weed ForagersSue Jackson visits a couple of foraging pioneers.

 The day I chose to visit Adam Grubb and Annie Raser-Rowland in their inner-city home in Melbourne’s East Brunswick was icy cold. It was also spasmodically pouring with rain, hardly ideal conditions to go foraging as we had planned. But Adam was off overseas the next day and I wanted to catch the famous forager before he left town.  Everywhere I look these days — in Gourmet Traveller and Vogue (which of course I only read at the hairdressers’) and in in-flight magazines, newspapers, on-line publications, even in restaurant menus — foraging is the buzz-word. If this keeps up, it could be in danger of becoming mainstream.
