Mushroom Festival now accepting Cook-off entries


Kathleen Harmon’s Mushroom Taquitos won first place at last year’s Mushroom Cook-off.

KENNETT SQUARE — Mushrooms are the star of the Mushroom Festival’s Amateur Mushroom Appetizer Cook-Off. The challenge for home cooks is to create an appetizer featuring the mushrooms that are commercially grown in Kennett Square, such as button, crimini, portabella, oyster, maitake, and/or shiitake.

Entries are now being accepted. Deadline to enter is August 8. From all the entries submitted, six finalists will be selected to prepare their recipes in the Mushroom Festival’s Special Events Tent on Saturday, September 12 at 10:30 am.

The first place winner receives $500 and a plaque. Plaques are also awarded to second and third place winners. The winning recipe will be featured on the Mushroom Festival’s website and in various publications.
