East Coast Wild Foods was formed out of the passion to provide quality, wild ingredients to chef’s and residents of Nova Scotia.

Sarah d’Apollonia, Forager & Owner

East Coast Wild Foods is led by Sarah d’Apollonia. Sarah has always lived a life inspired by nature and curiosity. A biologist by training, she has lived in Spain, Denmark, Bolivia and Japan and has taken the time to explore the local food ingredients of many cultures. After exploring for several years, Sarah returned home to Nova Scotia to learn that there are many wild edibles that are not being used or which have been lost along the way in East Coast cuisine. Working with chefs and educating the public, Sarah is happy to share the knowledge she has learned over the years to bring you fresh, wild and quality ingredients from Mother Nature.
