Slow Food Russian River: Fabulous Fungi. A Tour And A Tasting
Slow Food Russian River is happy to invite Slow Food members to this exciting tour of a prominent grower of culinary and nutraceutical mushrooms and fungi mycelium, Gourmet Mushrooms, Inc. in Graton, CA.
The company was the first commercial grower of shiitake mushrooms in the Western Hemisphere.
Now fresh shiitake are commonplace, and the company has moved on to develop new varieties - such as Buna-Shimeji, Trumpet Royale, Nameko and Hen-of-the-Woods - and remains on the cutting edge of mushroom cultivation.
The Event Highlights
- Tour of Gourmet Mushrooms Inc
- Presentations by a team member of GMI and a small commercial grower, by a representative of the Sonoma Mycological Association, and by a food expert about the nutritional and nutraceutical benefits of replacing meat by mushrooms in your diet
- Comparing taste and texture differences between grilled and sauteed mushrooms
- Tasting of wines and mushroom appetizers
Gourmet Mushrooms, Inc was founded in 1977 and has been Certified Organic since 2003, both in its fresh mushrooms and its nutraceutical mushroom mycelium.
