“Creating Duxelles” – A Cooking Demonstration
by Kathleen Foland of The Midwest Mermaid Muse

Scheduled at The Savory Spice Shop on May 25, 2019

Kathleen (Kathy) Foland, a certified health coach based in Kansas City and owner of The Midwest Mermaid Muse, will be doing a special cooking demonstration at the Savory Spice Shop. The event will be on May 25, 2019 at 6245 Brookside Boulevard from 10AM to 2PM.

Kathy will be demonstrating how to sautée mushrooms to create “Duxelles” – a finely chopped mixture of mushrooms or mushroom stems, onions or shallots, herbs and seasonings reduced to a paste or a base. She will share how to boost the flavor of the mushroom base, while increasing its nutritional benefits with the addition of dried seaweed as well as her spice mix Land & SEAsoning. Creating Duxelles is also a great way of eliminating food waste and it can be used to prepare make-ahead meals. Kathy will be using local culinary and healing mushrooms from the Grand River Mushrooms. 

This is a free event, and no reservations are required. For more information, please call either Rebecca Tombaugh, Manager of the Savory Spice Shop in Brookside at 816-656-5520, or Kathy Foland at 816-363-7711.
