After a lucky find of a wild turkey in pristine condition, expert forager Les Stroud heads out with a local mycologist to gather one of the world's most sought after mushrooms; Matsutake aka "Pine Mushrooms". Returning with an armload of mushrooms Les sits back while master chef Paul Rogalski blows his culinary mind with a simple dish of mushrooms on toast followed by the best turkey Stroud has ever tasted.
LES STROUD'S WILD HARVEST explores the latest craze hitting restaurants and home kitchens: foraging wild foods in season from local sources. Host Les Stroud, the star of TV's Survivorman, finds fertile natural locations to forage and harvest wild mushrooms, salad greens, spices and more. Then, he meets up with chef Paul Rogalski, who transforms the ingredients Les has found into a three-course meal - complete with wild coffee, wine or beer.
