Mendocino County on the radar for Wine & Mushroom Fest

ASAP LIFESTYLES AMERICAN ST.jpgIf you love mushrooms and enjoy a glass or two of vino, the annual Mendocino County Wine & Mushroom Fest awaits you Friday through Nov. 13. It's been called "one of the top six food festivals in the nation" by the food and wine experts at

Right now is peak mushroom-harvesting season there, with 500 edible varieties from which to choose. Those delectable fungi go into dishes that pair well with the wines of the Anderson and Russian River Valleys.

The 10-day multi-venue, county-wide festival will feature special dinners and wine-, beer- and food-tastings, workshops and seminars, hands-on cooking classes and cooking demonstrations, entertainment and art exhibits, and guided expeditions (on foot, and by kayak and train) to forage for mushrooms.
