Eat, Learn About Mushrooms Tonight

Buttons and portabellas are for amateurs, right? Okay, but if you believe you're ahead of the game with shitakes and chanterelles, you'll change your mind after tonight's eye-opening Kitchen Table Talks: Magnificent Mushrooms at Viracocha (998 Valencia Street at 21st). Millenium's executive chef Eric Tucker will demo and serve a shroom-y snack while advising on choosing and cooking the most delicious fungi. Also included is a poisonous mushroom-eating challenge and educational panel on medicinal and scientific benefits by cultivation experts. Factor in complimentary food and wine and the whole experience is more than worth a suggested donation of $10, especially if you don't die from the poisonous mushrooms. [The Feast]
