What you will do
The workshop will start with an informative session where Wouter introduces different growth media, substrates, cultivation methods and fungal strains, as well as the potential of mycelium. There will be enough time to ask any questions you might have about mushrooms. You will take home a bag of substrate to cultivate oyster mushrooms and with knowledge on how to extract spawn from fully grown mushroom.
Wouter Hassing is a known expert in local mushroom cultivation. His company Mycophilia (in the Flevoland province) not only supplies local restaurants with Shiitake en Eryngii, but also serves as a platform for research and innovation. Wouter investigates low energy production methods and loves to find ways to make better use of mushrooms in the kitchen. During the workshop, he will gladly tell you about pulled pork from oyster mushrooms or shi-take ice cream.
