The Mushroom Council Travels to FNCE

Earlier this month, the Mushroom Council journeyed to Philadelphia, PA, to attend the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) to connect with registered dietitians and celebrate ways to incorporate nutritious mushrooms into more meals.

From expo booths to educational sessions we could go on and on, but we’ll defer to registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner’s roundup of 5 Top Food Trends from FNCE and this great recap of the event from Food and Health Communications that shares 50 interesting findings from the conference. And guess what? Mushrooms made the list not once, but twice. First, with our beautiful display of mushroom varieties from nearby Kennett Square (the Mushroom Capital of the World) and again for the delicious Swedish Meatballs we sampled at our booth. With mushrooms earning rave reviews in Philly, we wanted to share the recipe with you so you can enjoy a taste of FNCE in your own kitchen.

Considering Kennett Square was only a hop, skip and jump away from Philly, we worked in a little day trip with 40 registered dietitians. First we toured a nearby mushroom farm for a first-hand look at how mushrooms are grown. Then, we ventured to the Farmhouse restaurant for a three-course mushroom meal, complete with a mushroom dessert! Check out photos from our entire trip on Facebook.
