I met a farmer in spring named Roy. Meeting Roy through a preview story I did for the Excelsior’s Farmers’ Market, I interviewed Roy on his Shiitake mushrooms that he grows as one of his sale items at the market. He explained the process in which the mushrooms are grown https://chrisdillmannphotography.wordpress.com/2012/04/25/gullywash-gardens/. I met up with Roy later in the summer at the farmers’ market where he gave me some mushrooms to take home.
Having some leftover egg noodles I wanted to get rid of and knowing the mushrooms would go well with an Asian theme I decided to do a pasta with mushroom sauce. Using a base for the sauce made of up soy, hoisin, fresh basil bought at the market, sriracha, garlic and an assortment of spices I sauteed the mushrooms with the sauce. Cooking the chicken with lime juice, salt, pepper, paprika, thyme and a spicy sesame glaze. I combined fresh cut peppers with and dinner was ready.
