Dining Room DIY

It’s common at Urban Farmer Portland to see a chef sneak through the dining room into the Pantry to grab a jar of pickled vegetables for the charcuterie board or snag some salsify for the pacific wild salmon. But when was the last time you saw a chef harvesting mushrooms from the dining room? With a little help from our buddy Bob at Misty Mountain Mushrooms in Yamhill, OR the Urban Farmer dining room is now home to cultivation of shitake and maitake mushrooms. Bob created us a mushroom friendly environment for 4 blocks of each variety to thrive in a climate controlled setting aided by a timed mister. Harvest, sauté and finish & crisp shallot. Now that’s what we call hyperlocal!
