Fall Mushroom Tasting

September 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Mycology Association of Washington, DC’s mushroom tastings feature mycophagy (mushroom-based cooking) – delicious and educational at the same time! Taste mushrooms and other wild foods you have never tried before, and compare the results of different preparation and preservation techniques. For example, you might learn:

  • Which makes better broth – black staining polypore or hen of the woods?
  • Which makes better risotto – black trumpet chanterelles or boletes?
  • Do you prefer truffle ice cream or candy cap ice cream?

Participants will vote for the best preparations and we will share our recipes.

The participation fee is $10 per person (waived for members who cook). Participants MUST be active members of MAW the day of the event, so if you want to bring friends, they need to sign up as MAW members. Preregistration is STRONGLY recommended due to space and portion limitations.
