Tuesday, April 8 – 7:30pm – CUH
Dr. Denis Benjamin will present "The Art and Science of Mycophagy." Collecting and eating "wild" mushrooms is part of contemporary foraging and culinary chic. However, lore and urban legends still surround the edibility, nutritional value, and best ways to preserve and cook mushrooms. Denis will demystify the issues of mushroom edibility and cookery, and will clarify and describe ways to enjoy the bounty of field and forest.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
