Let's eat some shrooms! Join us at the Des Moines Culinary Loft where we'll uncap the secrets of wild mushrooms: how to find them, dry them, grind them, freeze them – and, most importantly, how to cook them! We’ll cover classic spice combos and techniques (just in time for the holidays) – along with some special surprises featuring hen of the woods, chicken of the woods, wood ears, oysters, king oysters, and puffballs. Students will receive a bag of frozen chicken of the woods to take home!

We're gonna shroom shroom shrooma shroom...

For two years, I've co-organized the Prairie State Mushroom Club’s spring banquet – and all-mushroom feast. Last year's guest chefs included The Cheese Shop of Des Moines and mushroom sausage from the Story City Locker. Read more about it in the Des Moines Register here
