Foraging celebrity and New York Times contributor Ava Chin joins Rachel on this week’s episode of Brooklyn Eats to teach us about way to find food in our own backyards, literally. Tune in to learn about how Ava came to forage in the first place and find out about some of the more “interesting” plants that are growing wild in our neighborhoods.
