Tuesday, Dec. 10 – 7:30pm – CUH
Holiday Cookie Bash
& Members' Meeting
Please bring a plate of hors d'oeuvres, a casserole, baked goods or other treats, and/or a dessert (COOKIES!) to share. Bring your favorite beverage, put on your best fungal-themed jewelry and attire, and be prepared to have a great time.
Release your inner Myco-Angelo and enter our annual edible mushroom art contest. Prizes will be awarded by popular acclaim, and entries may be consumed after the votes are in. The theme for your creation is "The World of Fungi." Arrive early to set up your work of edible art.
Langdon Cook will be our guest speaker. He will present stories, pictures, and anecdotes from his recently published book The Mushroom Hunters, On the Trail of an Underground America, a hidden world of commercial mushroom pickers, distributors, and chefs, and reveals how those treasured and highly perishable wild mushrooms get from the forests to fancy restaurants where they often command high market prices.
