Behind the Scenes at Mushrooms Canada: Toronto Wine & Cheese Show 2012

I am happy to announce… we made through another fantastic Toronto Wine & Cheese Show!

This past weekend Mushrooms Canada set up shop in Toronto at the Wine & Cheese show. We handed out recipe booklets, brown paper bags, and over 250lbs worth of mushroom samples! Yes it looks like Toronto loves their mushrooms!

We were happy to answer lots of questions like, “What kind of mushrooms are these!” and of course the infamous, “Mushrooms have no nutritional value, right?”

We even had a few true mushroom lovers show up at the booth for a sample, like this young lady, who proudly came to our booth and pronounced, “I had to come have a sample because I am wearing my mushroom dress!” Now that’s true love!

As I mentioned last week, I was really excited to see Chef Lynn Crawford on the KitchenAid cooking stage… and she did not disappoint! She made a wonderful pasta dish, and even challenged audience participants to make the “World’s Longest Lasagna Noodle.” Very fun!

And of course we can’t ignore all the glorious food that was served….

I would like to thank everyone who came out and tried a sample, asked a question, and filled out a ballot for our T-Fal pan draw!

I also want to thank my amazing staff, Shannon and Amanda.

See you all next year at the 2012 show!
