London Wine and Food Show

Have some spare time this weekend? Why not head over to the London Wine & Food Show at the Western Fair.

This year’s show promises to be a great one with lots of wine, food, cooking demos, and tasting seminars.

Mushrooms Canada will be there sauteing up some fresh Ontario Crimini Mushrooms, and handing out some fabulous recipes. Be there on Saturday evening for our “Ask a Mushroom Farmer” session, where you can ask a local mushroom farmer anything that’s on your mind.

Make sure you had over to the Food Network Cooking stage, Saturday at 7:00pm. I will be cooking up my favourite recipe Sweet & Spicy Stir-Fried Mushrooms. Delicious!

Interested? You can purchase ticket on the Western Fair Website.

See you there!

A New Year and a New Blog

Happy New Year Everyone, and welcome to the New Mushrooms Canada Blog.

Let me start with a little self introduction. My name is Brittany and I am the Marketing Manager for Mushrooms Canada. I started working with Mushrooms Canada three years ago when The Canadian Mushroom Growers’ Association was looking for a new identity. Over the past few years we have worked very hard to build the Mushrooms Canada brand into what you see here today. In other words, we have been pretty busy!

You may have seen Mushrooms Canada out-and-about recently; cooking mushrooms at several Women’s Shows, making appearances on TV, hosting Student Chef Competitions, and in magazines. Well, there is a lot more of that to come in 2009. So make sure you add this blog to your reader, sign-up for our Award Winning Newsletter, and check back regularly, because there will be tons of mushroom news and info coming your way!
