Wild Mushroom Fair Next Weekend

I do not like mushrooms.  I really, really do not like them.  Every once in a while, I eat a few off of someone’s plate, just to see if I still do not like mushrooms.  I’ve had everything from the crappy two-dimensional mushroom sliced overlapped on a bad pizza to $200+/pound truffles.  The pricey truffle was given to me by a work colleague who insisted that I didn’t like mushrooms because I was eating all the wrong ones.  He gave me a sliver of his precious lode, probably about $10 worth there, and I am sorry to say that that was $10 wasted.

But you probably like mushrooms.  Most people like mushrooms.  Most people who like food and life like mushrooms.

For you, then, I post this: the Los Angeles Mycological Society hosts the 27th Annual Wild Mushroom Fair on NEXT Sunday (February 13) at the LA County Arboretum & Botanic Garden in Arcadia.  There will be cooking demos, mushroom cultivation lessons, and other fungi-related fun.  Um, fun.  Full details are here.
