MMS Annual Potluck – members only!
The 2019 MMS Annual Potluck Dinner will be held on Monday, October 28th, 6:00 pm. Please note the new location! The Diamondhead Education Center is on Burnsville Parkway just east of 35W. There is plenty of free parking and the Savage Room is on the Upper Level. Door 2 is closest and your best option, but Door 1 will work as well.
This event is for MEMBERS ONLY with no exceptions!!!!! If your membership is “individual” or “student” it means you only may attend. No guests are allowed.
WHAT CAN YOU BRING TO THE POTLUCK? Everyone or family attending must bring something to share, but they do not need to have mushrooms in them. If you include store-bought mushrooms there are no restrictions. However if you use wild gathered mushrooms in preparing a dish for the potluck, please remember to use only one of the species of wild mushroom listed below, and only use one wild species per dish. Dishes with any other mushrooms will not be allowed. However a member may make a request, no later than one week in advance, to the MMS president to include another that is widely accepted as edible. This will be considered on a case by case basis… such approvals are viewed very conservatively, so do not take it for granted that it will be approved. Remember that commercially purchased mushrooms, cultivated mushrooms and non-mushroom dishes are absolutely welcomed. In no case will Honey Caps, Armilleria mellea complex, be allowed. All dishes will require a recipe and ingredients list due to food allergy issues… no exceptions, please!
Acceptable wild mushrooms (one per dish):
- Puffball, Large – Calvatia gigantea
- Sulfur Shelf – Laetiporus species
- Hen of the Woods – Grifola frondosa
- Morel – Morchella species
- Black Trumpet – Craterellus cornucopioides or fallax
- Lobster – Hypomyces lactifluorum
