Got your bags packed? 🧳 This week we’re heading to the Northeast.
ICYDK: This National Mushroom Month, we are taking a virtual road trip across the United States to showcase how people are enjoying mushrooms. From regionally-inspired recipes and restaurants, to fungi facts and nutritional benefits, get ready to Explore Mushrooms. Here. There. Everywhere. Beginning with the Northeast.
Composed of nine states, this region of the country is home to the mushroom capital of the world: Pennsylvania. An ample supply of fresh mushrooms means this region knows how to do mushrooms and do them well.
Channel the flavors of Northeastern favorites within your own kitchen or visit one of the many restaurants with mighty delicious mushroom menu offerings.
