non-cultivated, non-GMO, uncertified organic. Wild food means food that is not planted. Untamed Feast is built on the principle that nature effortlessly provides the best tasting and most nutritious food. Many products on the market and on menus use wild to refer to a hybrid or domesticated ingredient that was once collected in its natural state from its natural environment. Our wild ingredients are truly wild and always will be.
Wild food is the pinnacle of healthy eating. It is the most nutrient dense and the least processed food that you can put into your body. Wild mushrooms are full of protein, boost your immune system, and are proven cancer fighters. Sea vegetables are the highest naturally occurring source of iodine and full of nourishing mucilage. Wild rice is a high-fibre, high-protein source of antioxidants, B vitamins, manganese and much more.
Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Dairy-free
Untamed Feast products do not contain any gluten, nuts, or dairy. Though some of our products are complemented by cream, pasta, cheese, or nuts, our recipes are directed to a large range of diets and those with the above mentioned allergens can easily accommodate. Many of our celiac and dairy-free customers are delighted to discover that dishes like risotto, gravy, and other comfort foods can go back on their ‘Can-Have’’ list.
Vegetarian & Vegan Friendly
Untamed Feast products do not contain any meat or any animal-derived ingredients. Though our wild mushrooms and wild rice pair well with an array of meats and cheeses, our recipes are directed to a large range of diets and those with the above restrictions can easily accommodate. In fact, many of our vegetarian and vegan customers find that our wild ingredients are excellent substitutes for more conventional protein sources.
Wild food punches way more flavour per bite than mass produced anything. Ever experience the taste explosion of a wild strawberry followed by the major let-down of a large, pale, imported one? Wild food tastes better because it comes from the richest soils and the cleanest waters...as vivid as nature intended. Plus, dried wild food is concentrated in flavour. Simple preparations can bring about some serious gastronomic pleasure.
Are you are new to cooking with wild food? Fear not friends. We have plenty of recipe ideas for you to chose from and mulitple on-line cooking demonstrations that take you through, step-by-step, how to create a simple and delicious meal. The easiest option of all is to select one of our ready to cook items which require no greater skill than chopping an onion. Having said that, Foodies, we encourage you to get your fancy on!
We use low impact or no impact harvesting methods for our mushrooms, sea vegetables and northern wild rice. We do things the slow, gentle, and old fashion way... by hand. No manipulation of the soil or the water is required, we use natural drying techniques, and but a fraction of the abundance of these edible resources is collected. We harvest in untamed and remote areas that are free of herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers.
Do you know where your food comes from? We show you videos of the pristine and untamed environments from which we harvest and we even tweet the exact coordinates of our gps in peak harvest season. Our crew is a small, well-trained group of individuals who are passionate about wild harvesting wild food. Plus, every product includes a harvest tracking number and a batch number so we know the who, the where, and the when of it.
