I am so jazzed about the participation and the feedback!
Here's just some of the feedback I received on Classes I and II:
"We really enjoyed the class - great info and love your presentation style."
"Hi Corinne, it was a thoroughly enjoyable class and I learned a lot. Now I know where to start when identifying the mushrooms that grow in my lawn and under my conifers!"
"I really enjoyed the class. It was really informative, and I am looking forward to discovering these mushrooms. Thank you!"
At the end of class I asked the participants if they wanted another mushroom class or if we should get back to "other edibles," and the votes were overwhelmingly "MUSHROOM!"
So, the next class will feature 5 (or maybe another 6 like in the last class) of prime fall mushrooms we can find NOW!
Join me, Corinne Gregory Sharpe, foraging expert and The Shipboard Chef for a fact-filled and informative class that will help you turn "frantically hunting" into "happily (and safely) gathering!"
Part II will take place LIVE on Wednesday, November 9th at 5pm PT.
On the tentative list for this class are Lion's Mane (yummy and medicinal!), Hedgehogs, Shrimp Russulas, and a few more!
Not only will I help you identify them, but we will talk about how to harvest and what to do with them. The class contains additional resources such as
- Class slides
- Extra Resources
ADDED bonus! I have partnered with North Spore, a provider of premium mushroom grow kits and products for this series of classes. When you sign up for the class, you are automatically entered to win one of FIVE grow kits they are providing -- up to a $30 value. So, you are practically getting PAID to take this class! AND, you get to grow your own mushrooms in the comfort of your own home. Click here to browse and shop.
Use the code "SHIPBOARDCHEF" for 10% off your purchase, too!
NOTE: if you can't join us Live, you can still sign up and get lifetime access to all the great content, including the class video and the entry to the North Spore drawing!
Although this class is focused on mushrooms found growing throughout the Western U.S. many of the species we'll be covering ALSO happen to be found in the Eastern U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
Can I make it any better?
The info for Zoom class will go out at 4pm the same day.
This is a longer class than most -- allow for 90-minutes to be sure we get through all the great content.
One more added bonus: for those of you on my email list, you know I schedule and conduct in-person forays in the Fall (and early Winter if conditions are good). A Fall mushroom class is a pre-requisite to be offered these forays since it only increases the enjoyment (and success) for you and the other participants of the field events.
If you don't have the benefit of asking LIVE questions send any questions you want me to cover to firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, here's the really good news: you will get lifetime access to the content. So, hop on when it fits your schedule. No limit to how many times you can access the class or any of the related content like the recipes, how-to videos and other bonuses.
All this (and more) for only $27!
Can't wait to see you at this next class!
I'm Corinne, Professional Chef & foodie.
As long as I can remember, I have loved food, cooking and serving delicious dishes and meals. My creativity showed itself at an early age: at age six, I presented my mother with my first-baked birthday cake, frosted in home-colored lavender (grey) frosting, decorated with fresh flowers (which, we later learned weren’t edible….but they were pretty!) I was already foraging back then, but maybe not so well! haha
Since then, I have widely expanded my abilities and experience in the food scene. I formed a business that did restaurant menu design and consulting for several of Seattle’s finest dining rooms, including the then-Four Seasons’ Atrium Court. I have served as cookbook reviewer and recipe tester for John Howie’s cookbook, Passion and Palate, and have competed on the Nate Berkus Show with none other than Diners, Drive Ins and Dives’ Host Guy Fieri as judge. Celebrity Chef and three times’ James Beard winner Tom Douglas is one of my mentors and I've spent some time cooking at Etta’s, one of Tom’s iconic seafood restaurants.
When I'm not on the water, you can find me in my “land galley” (kitchen) or in the outdoors foraging for mushrooms and other “wild” foods.
Join me in my mission to use what the Earth has given us and make it taste good along the way!
Gourmet mushrooms are ridiculously expensive. Want to learn how and WHERE to find them and have the added benefit of fresh air and exercise? Then join me for this first of a series of Fall and Winter mushroom classes. Learn how to turn "hunting" into "gathering" safely and confidently!
