Words cannot properly relay the excitement I felt when I first read about Battle Mushroom, the 4th installment of She Simmers and Gourmet Fury’s monthly “Beet n Squash You” Food Fight. Some of the most creative writers, photographers and recipe developers in the food blogosphere competing with mushrooms as their shared ingredient…can’t ask for much more than that.
Take the image above for example- Mushroom Cardamom Rice Pudding with Dulce de Leche. I’ve been looking for mushroom desserts for awhile now and it’s become a bit of a personal quest. This looks absolutely glorious so it comes as no surprise that it hails from Gourmet Fury, one of the competition’s founders.
Alas, another photo that took my breath away. Tortelloni made to look like little sunsets in a bowl contrasted with a rich medley of mushrooms. The Sugar Bar entered Beetroot Tortelloni with Wild Mushroom Medley into the competition. These are just entries…they aren’t even the winners.
This is why I’m sending you to two other sites today. Yes, I’m sending you away from the Mushroom Channel this one time because these entries are worth your time. Your eyes will thank you for the inspiration, your appetite may drag you to the grocery store.
