The exhibits were excellent and educational … but where was the food? We arrived at 2pm and the one (yes – uno) food station serving soup (just soup?!?!!) was cleaning up. Finito. No mas. We were starving. Later on we learned that the shroom foodies only hung out in Santa Cruz!
Consolation was learning a bit more about shrooms and discovering a Russula that smelled like shrimp – Russula xerampelina – apparently a choice edible according to the docent! Then bought porcini mushroom broth cubes from Italy (a la Knorr, though noted it contains MSG) and a little $13 baggie of dried morels, enough for 2 meals of chicken/morel risotto!
