Enjoy this little Friday diversion from The Fearless Cook. We can personally attest to the deliciousness of River Valley Mushrooms‘ raviolis for anyone in the Midwest with a craving. If you’re feeling daring, try making your own mushroom ravioli with this tutorial from Rhodey Girl Tests.

The City of Hope is a very important organization to all of us at the Mushroom Channel but particularly within the broader Mushroom Council. You may remember the fundraiser in October last year and, sneak preview, we have some good ideas in the works to go even bigger this year (with your help if you’ll lend it).
When we saw this video, we figured it was worth posting here. Our involvement with City of Hope has been related mainly to breast cancer research which deserves our attention far beyond just October, the month formally devoted to raising awareness. Think pink and have a great weekend!
Are you all already reading Food52? I think that it’s easily my favorite new food project to be executed online in that last year, which is why I ask.
The brain-child (perhaps better described as the appetite-child) of Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, both of the New York Times in different capacities, Food52 is now a cozy hub to many many other independent food writers. You may have noticed a few mentions of their good work when they did a robust and delicious program all about mushroom soup last year.
The best thing about group sites for me is that there’s a constant sense of discovery with so many formidable cooks in the kitchen. Food52 recently introduced to another interesting set of chefs- the siblings behind Working Class Foodies, a web video series delivering champagne feasts on light beer budgets.
Check out the following video for Creamy Polenta with Mushrooms and a Poached Egg.
While the recipe in real time certainly takes a bit longer than a minute, I love the concept for the Beef Wellington demo and think the cook did a nice job capturing the basic stages of the recipe. Plus there’s a shot right around the 1:12 mark where I think I can smell that pan de-glazing in all of its glory after being used to saute almost a pound of mushrooms and four lovely pieces of beef. The ingredient list is hosted here.
There’s something that feels right about posting great mushroom videos on The Mushroom Channel. I came across this demonstration earlier in the week and think Food Wishes does a beautiful job on this recipe for a delicious mushroom soup. I get warm just watching those little buttons caramalizing and this recipe is perfect for those of us in the midst of a snowball fight with Mother Nature! You can find the ingredients at the bottom of his post here.
