Piasa Winery in Grafton, IL, holds Mushroom Festival
Make the most of your mushrooms at the annual Mushroom Festival at Piasa Winery in Grafton, Illinois. The day-long event on April 28th, 2013, is dedicated to celebrating the versatility of the mushroom and features all kinds of earthy creations.
Guests can sample mushroom-themed dishes from local chefs as they compete in a mushroom cook-off, and $10 buys them all the samples they can handle as well as a glass of wine. Afterwards they can vote on their favorite dish to determine which chef takes home top honors.
Attendees can also bring in mushrooms of their own to compete in the biggest and smallest mushroom contest, with the winner taking home the mushroom trophy, and, of course, bragging rights for the next year.
