Feast in the Wild

We absolutely love being a part of our local Buttonwood Park Zoo's annual Feast in the Wild. Each year it is a summer evening featuring signature dishes from local culinary talents, silent auctions, raffles, and of course-animal encounters. 

Whether you enjoy these dishes at the feast or are inspired to create them yourselves, we are excited to share the recipes we have prepared for this year.
