Behind the Scenes at Mushrooms Canada: London Wine & Food Show

This past weekend I had a blast sauteing up a storm at the Mushrooms Canada booth at the London Wine & Food Show. All weekend long, our pans were hot serving up Fresh Ontario Crimini Mushrooms in Olive Oil and Italian Seasoning- YUM!

After a successful Thursday night, we kicked off Friday morning with our friends at Rogers Daytime TV, where Brittany treated the hosts to some delicious mushroom treats. Out in the waiting room Brittany wasn’t nervous at all! I swear, she nailed it!

First up, was the Mushroom “Chips” and Dip that serve as an excellent substitute for the salty snacks we normally reach for.

Next up, was the vegetarian dinner favourite Mushroom & Vegetable Tacos.

Videos are coming soon! We are just as excited to watch them as you are, I promise! After Brittany’s moment of fame was up, we headed back to the Wine & Food Show, ready for another fun, foodie night. Special thanks to Foodland Ontario for making our booth look so great with their information cards and tasty-looking calendars! My favourite recipe is the Chicken and Mushroom Enchiladas, yum!

Saturday was the final day of the show, but was certainly the most exciting! In the afternoon, we had an hour in the Tasting Room that allowed us to chat mushrooms with our captive audience. Stay tuned for the post on our time in the Tasting Room, as well as our Partnership with The Windjammer Inn from Port Stanley.
BIG thank you to everyone who came out, sampled some mushrooms, asked questions and entered our draw. I’d also like to thank my trusty mushroom partner, Brittany, for all of her hard work this weekend, as well as mushroom farmers, Murray and Chantelle Good for all of their help!
