*Online* Cooking with Wild Mushrooms
About this Workshop
Learn Chef Robin Kort’s top recipes for wild mushrooms from her famous porcini pate to nettle stuffed morels with goat cheese. Each unique mushroom has recipes that are meant for them. For example, truffles in egg drop soup are perfect because the soup is simple and let’s the aroma of the truffle shine. She’ll show you how to preserve common Pacific Northwest mushrooms like porcini, chanterelle, lobster, cauliflower and many more for when you find more than you can eat in one day. Each requires it’s own preservation method (drying, sautee and freeze, pickling) to make sure that it’s delicate texture and flavour are preserved. It takes so much time and luck to hunt for mushrooms, it’s always worthwhile to learn to make them taste their best!
In addition to Robin’s original video content (which you’ll have access to for one year to watch and re-watch), Robin will host a 1.5 hr live Zoom Q&A session on November 14th, 11:00 am-12:30 pm.
