Been a busy little bee today buzzing around Manchester. First of all to see the lovely folk at Soup Kitchen on Spear St in Manchester’s Northern Quarter who will be serving our mushrooms on their menu from this week, using our creamy winter chanterelle soup recipe. It’s a fantastic live music club with a really good kitchen run by enthusiastic chefs James and Andy who always put on a great spread so we’re really excited! Then it was off to our favourite city centre health food store Eighth Day Vegetarian Cafe and Shop with a delivery, a stop at Back’s Deli in Heaton Moor to meet the new owner & check stock and finally a visit to the award winning Barbakan Deli in Chorlton. We’re really pleased that they’ll be stocking our mushrooms from mid October when we get back from the next picking expedition. What a great day!
This weekend we’re running the cafe at Made in New Mills Art & Craft Fair on Saturday and doing another Fungus Foray on the Sunday, both events as part of the last weekend of the fantastic New Mills Festival. Last Sunday’s walk was a great success and we’re looking forward to meeting a fresh set of wild mushroom enthusiasts for another outing.
