Chad Hyatt is a classically trained chef that has spent the last decade working in restaurants and private clubs around the San Francisco Bay Area. He spends his free time hunting for and learning about mushrooms, along with seeking out new techniques and traditional ethnic recipes to apply to them. Chad frequently demos and teaches wild mushroom cookery at private and public events, does wild mushroom pop-up dinners, and recently released an innovative new wild mushroom cookbook, The Mushroom Hunter’s Kitchen. Join him for a demonstration of some of his favorite wild mushroom recipes Friday night in the Lower Atrium/Community Room B of the Cordova Center. Included in Fungus Festival registration.
