Vermont Mushroom Odyssey

Vermont Mushroom Odyssey, a short video I produced and co-edited airs this week on PEG-TV. It’s a home groan {sic} video, a culmination of our annual Labor Day mushroom forage. We call it an Odyssey, in part because of the Food Odyssey trips we organize here in Vermont and abroad in France and Italy, and because of the varied aspects the video covers. The video contains clips of one of the mushroom seminars and forays at Hemingway’s plus a visit to a local mushroom farm, along with a demonstration by Chef Ted of the techniques he uses in preparation of his recipe for mushroom risotto, an Italian rice dish. Vermont Mushroom Odyssey serves an overture to some of the pleasures our Green Mountain state has to offer. Up next? Vermont Apple Odyssey with heirloom apples, the best apple dessert, soft & hard cider, apple brandy and more!
