Explore the delicious and healthful possibilities of mushrooms in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Landi.
In this class with Chef Landi, you’ll learn how to create savory dishes using mushrooms for optimal health in a surprising variety of recipes, from beverages to dessert!
Your lesson starts with a warm team made with chaga and shiitake mushrooms and seasoned with ginger. Then, you'll create a savory porcini and oyster mushroom soup and seared salmon and parsnip purée using truffle oil, sautéed lion’s mane and king oyster mushrooms. And for dessert, craft a tantalizing bourbon bread pudding made using reishi mushrooms and chocolate.

I truly loved the experience. Chief Landi was prepared, professional, passionate, and accommodating. He welcomed all questions and took his time answering questions. He was entertaining and a good storyteller. He demonstrated many cooking techniques and allowed the opportunity to perform the techniques during meal preparation.
I can’t wait to schedule another date and time again.
Chef Landi's career began over 20 years ago in Italy, where he started as a server before quickly advancing to the kitchen. The skills he learned there were fundamental to his success as a chef. He discovered a passion for teaching after relocating to the U.S. in 2001 where he continues his dual career as a chef at an Argentinian steakhouse and an acclaimed culinary instructor.
