The Amateur Mushroom Cook-Off is on Saturday, September 8 in the Special Events Tent.
Cooking starts at 10:30 am. Judging begins at 11:30 am.
The 2018 theme is: Mushrooms Blended with Grassfed Beef or Lamb. Click here for complete rules and to access the application process.
Blended mushroom recipes require ground mushrooms to be mixed with a protein. As a trendy meat extender, the mushrooms create a unique, flavorful combination for burgers, meatballs, tacos, stuffing, or even a Bolognese sauce. The 2018 Mushroom Festival Amateur Cook-Off will focus on blending mushrooms with grassfed beef or lamb. At the Cook-off all recipes will be made with the Australian grassfed beef or lamb of our partner True Aussie Beef and Lamb.
Get your creative juices flowing. The deadline to enter is July 6, 2018.
