A Mushroom Feast for the Wild at Heart
April 18, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$100
Live cooking show and intimate six-course tasting dinner at the chef’s table
In this live cooking show and intimate six-course tasting dinner, mycologist and kitchen wizard Willoughby Arevalo will pair local wild and cultivated mushrooms with seasonal produce, allowing each type of mushroom to shine in preparations honoring their unique qualities. This Spring feast will focus on Morels, Shaggy Manes and Oyster Mushrooms, with foraged spring greens and other vernal delights. Participants will sit in the kitchen at the chef’s table, experience the ritual of preparation and may even be a part of the action. While the food is cooking, Willoughby will elaborate on important aspects of each mushroom species such as their identifying features, medicinal properties, ecology and more. Be delighted and surprised by the diverse flavors, textures and aromas while you learn how to recreate the recipes at home. Feel free to bring a bottle of wine.
