I have noticed most of your activities are in Pa. or at least on the East coast,do you have groups in Moscow Idaho area, I would love to get more education on wild edibles and their uses. Noreen from the paloose.
I really enjoyed your story, Chris, even though I may have a biased opinion. John's dad and I enjoy watching the farm and the five little farmers grow. To us it's what America is all about. Thanks for your nice piece.
I WENT TO HER NEW PLACE TODAY ON LIBERTY AVE,AND TRIED THE PULLED PORK SANDWICH.I MIGHT HAVE WAITED ABOUT AN HOUR TO TRY THIS,BUT IT'S WELL WORTH IT.THIS SANDWICH WAS SO GOOD,AND VERY TASTY,AND I'LL RETURN TO THIS PLACE.
J'eet had flopped.. It once was looking promising, but alas the original chef is gone, and the owner can't quite get it together again.. The food is NOTHING like it once was.. you'd be better off going to Panera
I absolutely love Verde Good Beans, and head in there at least once a week for the best hot chocolate I've ever had in my life. Both girls are wonderfully nice and Elysia is always on the ball with the drink orders. If they were to stay open later - specifically the panini press - I'd definitely stop by to pick up sandwiches for dinner every so often. :)
I work right around the corner from Verde and it has become my favorite spot - I refer to it as my satellite office - great food, drinks, and great owners - a nice change from the chains shops.
How can you have the owner of Bella Sera - Urban Trattoria in Market Square talking about one of the city's only green restaurants, he plead guilty to dumping human waste onto all clad property last year?

I just love AJ's!!
I love this store, but, sadly, miss the original owners!!!
I wish I would have found this place before I left Pittsburgh over this past weekend(7-19-09). See my name is Steve Nied and I'm from Detroit. My family is from Danville, Pa. originally. Next time through I'm there to check it out. Oh yea, Way to go Pens!!!
Wonderful article! I've also been on many of Melissa's walks & they're super-inspiring -- they really amp up your knowledge and awareness about all of the fascinating, tasty, nutritious edibles out there.
Great article and idea! I've been on 2 of Melissa and Dave's wild edible walks and they are so interesting and definitely fun too; just be sure to bring your camera and a notebook because it's way more information than you can hold in 1 afternoon and be useful to you the next.
Thanks for spreading the word Melissa!

I have tried the chicken shawarma and it was fabulous. I went back for seconds the following day. I believe that the amount of chicken Abu Rami puts in the sandwich is pretty good. I was full for a long time. Next time, I will try the falafel.
I am not from the Burgh, & saw the heartfelt story of Big Mama's Daily Grind on a local station back home. Upon moving here in the area, almost immediately I went on my search for Big Mama's. Me & My partner each ordered something different, I knew that I had to have those ribs that I'd heard so much about on the newscast, & my partner ordered Tilapia, fresh from the fridge & cooked to order. It was some of the BEST Home Cooked Food I'd tasted. The Peach Cobbler was Delicious, and those ribs, finger licking good, so good that I saved the infamous bbq sauce. Big Mama's definitely reached beyond my expectations with her culinary skills and her words. I was BLESSED to be able to meet her before leaving the restaurant and I am now a consistent patron of her establishment.
The side dishes were good. The Ribs were dry and tough. Worst ribs I ever ate. Recomment deserts and sides, but not the horse leather ribs.
