We’ve been checking in with former TEDxManhattan speakers to get an update on their work. We recently spoke with 2013 speaker Tama Matsuoka Wong, attorney turned professional forager. See Tama’s talk here.
Tama was profiled in July on NJ.com. Read the article or watch the accompanying video to get an update from this “professional forager, weed eater, meadow doctor and mother of three.” The article details her journey from lawyer to forager, and how she forged a partnership with Eddy Leroux, the chef de cuisine at Michelin-starred restaurant Daniel in New York, with whom she’s written a book, Foraged Flavor.
