What's going to happen?
First, Natascha will tell us more about the mushrooms we'll be tasting. After the presentation we will go ahead and taste the mushrooms, some raw, others cooked. Natascha will ask you about the taste and structure of the 'shrooms, and we'll talk about which mushrooms suit what dishes. Would you incorporate almond mushrooms in a sweet cake, or in a spicy Biryani? Or both? After this workshop your mushroom know-how will impress even the toughest crowd, and your new-found kitchen skills will keep you from going hungry for the rest of your life. We'll be washing the 'shrooms down with some nice wines or, if you prefer, a cold beer.
This workshop is hosted by Natascha Rothengatter of Portabella. Every weekend Natascha runs a stall at the Noordermarkt with a big variety of really fresh mushrooms. Read more about her on her website.
Natascha will bring a selection of fresh, dried and wild mushrooms to taste. Which types depend on the weather and what she's able to get.
