For the past two years the Premier Mushroom Demonstration Stage at the Colusa County Fair has included cooking demonstrations making dishes using mushrooms.
This year the stage is renamed the Colusa County Commodity Demonstration Stage and chefs will prepare dishes using any Colusa County grown or produced products.
“This could include mushrooms, rice, nuts, fruit, tomatoes, wine, meat, fowl, etc.,” said Bernice Dommer of the Colusa County Fair.
Chefs from the county and surrounding counties are invited to prepare dishes.
The stage opens Friday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. with the annual Colusa County Commodity Cook-off. Friday night’s only cooking demonstration after the cook-off will be provided by Colusa Casino Resort.
The stage is now scheduling chefs to cook between 12 noon and 7:30 p.m. on June 8 and 9. Each chef is provided one hour to cook and serve his or her dishes. There is a half an hour clean up and set up break between each demonstration.
Chefs or restaurant owners/managers interested in being a part of this event should contact Kathy Craigo Media Consulting/Kathy Craigo at (530) 458-3704.
“It is a great way promote restaurants and introduce the public to the foods they offer,” said Craigo. “We would like to include chefs and restaurants from as many establishments as time permits.”
The Colusa County Fair is June 6-9.
