Kennett Square PA Mushroom Festival

This past weekend, after 20 + years of wanting to attend, I finally got the chance to go to the Mushroom festival in the self proclaimed mushroom capital of the world.

Mushroom Farm Tour ( Maitaki, Shitaki, Oyster ( variety of colors)
Mushroom grow tent ( White mushrooms at various stages of growth)
Mushroom foods ( Mushroom Mac n Cheese, portobello fries, breaded shrooms..
Mushroom knick knacks
Mushroom apparel
Fresh shrooms for sale ( variety)
Typical food trucks and vendors ( stretched for about 1/2 mile of vendors

Had a great time, glad I finally got the chance to go

( Ill post pics a little later, gotta go to the market)

Portobello Fries sound really interesting. Did they hand out recipe cards?

Most were local restaurants dishing out their stuff, so no recipe cards. There were some vendors who were selling mushroom products that had recipe cards , but not for the portobello fries.

There is sure to be a recipe somewhere on the internet. Will have to do a search.

Basically deep fried breaded strips of Portobello mushrooms. The breading they used definitely had Thyme/ Sage ( probably other spices too, just hard to identify as they blended well together). There was a little bit of heat, but not too much. Also appeared to be Panko Bread Crumbs due to the look, texture and crunch factor. They served them with a side of a Mayo dipping sauce. Im not a mayo fan, so I just ate them plain. They were delightful

I did a search. Every recipe I looked at were just as you stated. So Portobello will go on my grocery list. I really should buy some Panko bread crumbs. I keep putting them on my list and never buy them. There was a restaurant in Tacoma that made stuffed mushrooms. I loved them. So I know I am going to have to try these.

Good luck, If whatever recipe you use is a hit, send it this way I bought panko breadcrumbs awhile back, used them once and the results were great. But since I rarely use them, I always forget that I have them until its too late.

Will do. And I will have to write it down as I am making them. This will not be a wing it recipe since it will be a first time making them.
