Discover Mushrooms on the Menu this Weekend

Earth and Turf Mushroom Burger by Richard Blais

Weekend dining decisions can always be a challenge.  Debating between cuisine, cost and location can make the entire burden a process when it’s meant to be a night out. Our advice is to let mushrooms be your decision maker. Take a look at a few of our highlighted spots where you can find mushrooms on the menu and quickly turn the dining decision into a matter of how many to order!

Flip Burger Boutique – If you live in Atlanta, and have never been to Flip Burger Boutique you are missing out on an amazing dining experience. Due to popular demand the Earth &Turf Burger, which features a 50/50 mushroom and meat blend, is remaining on the menu. Not local to Atlanta? You can make this burger at home as well.

Bahama Breeze – Enjoy an Island getaway in your own neighborhood. Taste a bit of island life with their Asian Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry. Features a blend of sautéed chicken, Shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, bell peppers and edamame in a sweet chili and ginger sauce; served over basmati rice and topped with peanuts.

Noodles and Company – Nothing is more comforting than a simple and easy meal on a Friday night, which you don’t have to worry about cooking. Noodles and Company features mushrooms in a variety of their dishes, including their most recent Garden Pesto Sauté, featuring asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, red bell peppers, onions, pecans, feta and walnuts in a light lemon pesto sauce with gluten-free rice noodles.

Discover even more mushrooms on the menu on our dining out page or Pinterest board.

Cheers to a great weekend ahead!

Mushrooms in the Big Easy

This past November we had the chance to get away for a few days from the early onset of winter in Chicago, to the sunny, fall weather in the Big Easy. The Council attended the annual International Foodservice Editorial Council conference in New Orleans, where we met with other foodies in the writing world.

At the event, we partnered with Chef Tenney Flynn of renowned New Orleans seafood restaurant, GW Finn’s, to meld New Orleans charm with the savory flavor of mushrooms. For anyone who has ever doubted their love for mushrooms and seafood, doubt no more. Chef Flynn will make you fall in love with both, time and time again.

Chef Flynn prepared two tasty mushroom dishes that included a mushroom risotto with grilled sea scallops and mushroom butter sauce, as well as a mushroom and oyster tart. Both dishes were a hit! In fact, we’re still dreaming about his mushroom risotto…

For those of you planning to visit the Crescent City, take a trip to the French Quarter and experience for yourself Chef Flynn’s delectable mushroom dishes. And for anyone who’s ever been, let us know!
