Mushroom Feast Mendocino
It’s that time of year when we celebrate the amazing gifts our local farmers produce, and even some gifts straight from Mother Nature herself– our marvelous Mendocino mushrooms! So, if you’re into the freshest mushrooms, delicious gourmet foods, epicurean cooking, and of course our award-winning wines, beers and distilled spirits, then get ready for a fantastic event, spanning the first two weekends in November.
As the first rains begin to fall, Mother Nature’s hidden bounty springs from the forest floor providing delicious morsels for our delectation. Take a tour with a mushroom expert and find some fungi for yourself; reserve a seat at one of the winemaker and mushroom pairing dinners; walk on the wild side with the Mushroom Man, Eric Schramm; be a Very Important Taster at the third annual Homebrew Festival; wind your way to Willits to munch on mushroom dishes at the Mushroom Cook-off; take a train to the forest for a foraging expedition; and much, much more! There’s fun for the entire family.
