What's in your backyard? This blog will follow me as I use ingredients you can find in your backyard to make delightful dishes.
My name is Jonathan Till. I'm a chef at a place called Evening Star Cafe, a neighborhood restaurant in Alexandria VA. My passion is cooking and bringing people together through food, and using the foods I forage to do so!
This blog and website will follow me through the seasons as I forage locally and create recipes and dishes at Evening Star (and my house) with the ingredients I forage. These recipes will later be compiled into a comprehensive cookbook that will help you identify whats growing in your backyard and how to properly and sustainably harvest and cook these ingredients. Please feel free to reach out to me via email or PM on Instagram. Seeing as I'm still actively working it might take me a little bit to return enquirers, but I definitely will!
