Join us for a mushroom tasting and discussion
With over 2,000 edible species of mushrooms alone, there's a lot learn.
We'll discuss culinary uses and aspects of many different fungi, as well as how to identify some of our local edible or medicinal species and further resources for learning.
Tips for cleaning, hunting, and preparing mushrooms will be shared, as well as advice on paring mushrooms with specific meals and using them as primary components in meals, often in place of meat.
We'll have a tasting of five different small plates each featuring a mushroom species prepared in a simple, accessible, elegant, and delicious fashion.
Mushrooms possess unique compounds with great potential in supporting both physical and mental health,, as well as mitigating and reducing our ecological impact.
We will discuss all these aspects and more. Please come with any and all mushroom related queries you may have.
Social distancing and masks will be required and special consideration will be taken when we are eating. Our facility is more than adequate to provide enough space for distancing. We also have a number of high efficiency particulate air filters that run continuously and clean then air in our space.
