Mushrooms in the News: 09-16-2020
On September 14th Bon Appétit premiered the video revealing our top three Blended Burger Project Home Edition competition finalists. In the video, test kitchen editor Chris Morocco prepared each of the recipes in his home kitchen before judging the winning burger: the Chili Maple Brunch Burger from Lauren Holly of Atlanta. As part of the Council’s partnership with Bon Appétit, the magazine also shared a roundup of top mushroom recipes.
MSN said mushrooms are “The Surprising Ingredient Your Burger Patties Need.” “Not only are mushrooms good for you, packing in plenty of dietary fiber and other vital nutrients, they also improve the taste and texture of your burgers!”
The recently launched The Blend To Go competition in Cleveland received coverage in Cool Cleveland, The Packer, Perishable News and Produce Blue Book.

Mushroom Council’s Facebook Poll was the most engaged post this week, asking fans to choose between Mushroom Jerky or Scallops (a touch choice for many – resulting in a nearly split).
Mushroom Month content continues to perform well, with the Week 3 announcement ranking as a top post this week as well.
