Hors d'oeuvres Recipe Contest 
by Field & Forest Products

If you grow (or love to cook with) Shiitake, Oyster, Lion’s Mane or Wine Cap mushrooms, we bet that you've been asked to "bring something with mushrooms" for a potluck or hors d'oeuvre party. We also bet that many of you have developed or adapted some delicious recipes for those occasions. Enter your favorite mushroom hors d'oeuvres recipe to share with our mushroom growing community for this upcoming holiday season! Our contest is open to hot or cold mushroom hors d'oeuvre recipes using fresh, dried or frozen Shiitake, Oyster, Wine Cap, Lion’s Mane or Comb Tooth mushrooms (or any combination thereof). Entrees will be judged based on their originality, ease of preparation, and taste by Chef Janice Thomas from the Savory Spoon Cooking School in Ellison Bay, Wisconsin.

The Grand Prize winner (1) will receive an 8-Block Starter Set, mix or match. 
Second (1) and third place (1) winners will each receive a Table Top Farm of their choice. 
F&FP reserves the right to publish all contestant recipes (with credit given, of course) on social media and in print.
