A Weekend at the London Wine and Food Show

I just returned home from a fabulous weekend at the London Wine & Food Show. There was plenty to be seen, heard, nibbled and sipped, with exhibitors ranging from Ontario wineries to local London restaurants.

Mushrooms Canada served up samples of fresh Sauteed Mushrooms, which proved to be a big crowd pleaser.

Sauteed-in-Frying-PanThe Food Network Cooking Stage was definitely the place to be, with great demonstrations by Roger Mooking, Steam Whistle Brewery, and Chef Keith Ryan from Fanshawe College. I also had the opportunity to present a cooking demo on the Food Network Stage on Saturday night. I cooked up one of my favourite recipes, Sweet & Spicy Stir-Fried Mushrooms.

Mushrooms Canada also conducted a draw to win a T-Fal Hot Spot Frying Pan. Congratulations to Karen S. from London on winning, we hope you put it to good use sauteing up some fresh mushrooms!

IMG_6728-(1)_WEBThanks to all who stopped by the Mushrooms Canada booth and enjoyed a sample, asked questions, entered the draw, and took home some wonderful recipes. We hope to see you again next year!
