Help finding wild fennel in Toronto
I am having an Homage to Julia Child dinner, and I am looking for wild fennel, without a bulb base,to use the seeds to line a fish stomach and stalks to smoke the fish to finish it. Does anyone know where I can get wild fennel in downtown Toronto? I have also heard read that I should look for European fennel as North American fennel stalks could be hazardous to my guests...Any thoughts on all of this?
Thanks in advance!
