This year at the annual Wild Mushroom Festival at the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center celebrated the flavors and mystique of wild mushrooms on October 3. There were delicious mushroom dishes prepared by chefs from the area’s finest restaurants. People enjoyed live music and local brewed black currant juice, beer, and wine. People brought their own unusual fungal finds to have them identified! Participating restaurants included: Daniel Packer Inne, The Fisherman, Flood Tide, Jasper White’s Summer Shack, La Belle Aurore, Norm’s Best, Puritan & Genesta, RiverWalk, Latitude 41, Singapore Grill, McQuade’s Marketplace and Mystic Soup Company. Cottrell Brewing and Maple Lane Farms provided beverages.
