Layers Of Flavors Culinary Training
From their unique umami flavors, nutritional benefits, and year-round availability, to their environmentally-friendly growing practices and ease of preparation, mushrooms are an excellent addition to any diet, and especially beneficial in school meals.
However, mushrooms can be unfamiliar to consumers as well as school nutrition operators. If menu planners and food service staff are unsure of how to prepare mushrooms and use them to create delicious meals, they’re less likely to advocate for them in the school cafe.
This training aims to increase participants’ familiarity with mushrooms, as well as provide ideas and education for how to incorporate more mushrooms into meals while keeping student acceptance, food cost, and waste in mind.
