Mushrooms are one of my favorite ingredients to use! We'll be using maitake mushrooms to make a nice pate served with our housemade sourdough bread, several pounds of oyster mushrooms to make 'oyster mushroom rolls,' both golden and black chanterelles, as well as pickled ramps from the farmers market for making a farro risotto, and even candycap mushrooms for a cheesecake!

Menu detail

Maitake Mushroom Pate & Sourdough Bread
We'll be making a rich and decadent maitake mushroom pate and serving it with our housemade bread, fresh fruit, and greens as accroutrements.
Lobster and Oyster Mushroom Roll
Small Plate
Oyster rolls are a classic New England dish, and we'll be using several pounds of oyster and lobster mushrooms (which have a very similar texture and color as cooked lobster) to make these rolls with
Golden and Black Chanterelle Farro Risotto with Pickled Ramps
We'll make farro risotto with a rich mushroom stock, and then add in decedent golden and black chanterelles, pickled ramps, and top it off with our grated almond parmesan.
Candy Cap Mushroom Cashew Cheesecake
Candy cap mushrooms have a sweet maple flavor to them, and are actually primarily used in desserts in many fancy restaurants. We'll be using them to make an excellent cashew based cheesecake with a pecan crust. This probably sounds a bit crazy, but when you've had candy cap mushrooms, it's difficult to think of it being used in a savory preparation. Surprise yourself! This dish will be a hit.
