Its Minnesota’s long-awaited morel season, oh those magical morsels! Our friendly mushroom expert, Kevin Doyle is back and looking forward to talking morels with you and supplying morels to Kris for savory creations we’ll taste. Of course when you get back home with your recipes, ready to cook and share, you’ll need information in order to wax poetic about these mushroom darlings. This is where Kevin comes in. He will cover: The natural history of morels and their place in the forest ecosystem; types of morels and the distinctions between them; how to tell true morels from false morels; cooking, preserving and tips on hunting morels. After class, go for a stroll and enjoy the spring Arboretum gardens.
Includes Arboretum admission and all ingredients.
