February Meeting - Cooking Demonstration with Chef Becky Selengut

Fresh off her book tour for Shroom: Mind-bendingly Good Recipes for Wild and Cultivated Mushrooms (and just back from SOMA camp where she taught cooking classes), Chef Becky Selengut returns home to demonstrate Black Trumpet Paté with Sage and Marsala at our upcoming PSMS meeting. She will be answering any of your mushroom cooking questions and will debunk some common myths about mushroom cookery such as that controversial one: To wash or not to wash? She will be on hand to sign and sell copies of her book.

When she's not squid jigging, fishing or cavorting through the woods picking wild things for her next meal, Becky Selengut is a private chef, an author, a humorist and a cooking teacher. A regular instructor for PCC Natural Markets and The Pantry at Delancey, Selengut is the author of the award winning book Good Fish: Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Coast. Her wife, sommelier April Pogue, contributed the wine pairings. Shroom: Mind Bendingly Good Recipes for Cultivated and Wild Mushrooms is her third book. In the near future, Selengut hopes to clone herself so she can find the time to do more fun things that other people call "work."

Would people with last names beginning with the letters L-Z please bring a snack or treat to share after the meeting?
