Mushroom and Wild Foods Tasting

Sunday, June 11, 2017 at 2:00 pm

Mycology Association of Washington’s semi-annual 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?

While mushrooms will be the main feature, any wild foraged food might appear on our spring tasting menu. In past years we have tried everything from wood sorrel to squirrel! 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.

Register now!  This link will take you to MAW’s website, from which point you can become a member and then register for the event.
