Winter Fungal Foray & Feast
Come and join CMS for a day in the woods and learn how to identify and gather winter mushrooms, followed by cooking up a variety of tasting dishes using some of our fungal finds from the day.
Pavel Gubanikhin and Matthew Johnson will teach you about fungi families in winter, where they grow and why and how to harvest wild mushrooms in a safeand sustainable manner during a few hours wandering through mixed woodland.
After the baskets are full, Heather Sielicki will fire up the camp stove and give a cooking demo and tasting of fresh winter chanterelles and hedgehogs using a variety of preparation methods.
- Tortellini in a Winter Chanterelle Champagne Cream Sauce
- Biscuits in Hedgehog Gravy (with or without Sage Turkey Sausage)
- Potato, Egg, and Wild Mushroom Frittata
- Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Winter Chanterelles
The group will meet at 10:00am on Sunday, January 25 in South Eugene and then carpool to a foray location roughly 60 to 90 minutes East. Participation in this foray is limited to the first 20 registrations. Kids are welcome but no dogs are allowed.
