The debut of the Premier Mushroom L.P. demonstration stage at the 2011 Colusa County Fair was a huge success.

Now it will continue at this year’s Fair June 7-10.

The stage will open on Friday night at 7:30 pm with the fair’s annual commodity cook-off which is being sponsored by the Colusa Casino Resort. The cook-off is open to chefs preparing dishes including California-grown rice and or nuts. Applications for the cook-off are available online at or at the fair office.

Chef Keith Erickson executive chef at the WinTun Dinner House at Colusa Casino Resort will judge the cook-off.

Chef Keith will later provide cooking demonstrations on the stage as will other area chefs.

Chefs (professional or non-professional) wishing to provide a demonstration should contact Bernice Dommer at (530) 458-2641.

“We had a great variety of dishes last year, and some wonderful chefs,” said Dommer. “The stage was a wonderful venue at our 2011 fair. We are anticipating that it will be even bigger this year.”

The stage is prominently located in Festival Hall, and will host any number of demonstrations during the four-day run of the fair.

The dishes demonstrated will use mushrooms, and chefs will be asked to use our locally grown Premier Mushrooms. As an added plus, not only does Premier sponsor the entire event, they also donate mushrooms needed for the preparation of the dishes.

John Ashbaugh CEO of Premier Mushrooms L.P. commented that they are very happy to provide this sponsorship, and to be a part of the Colusa County Fair.

“It was a great event last year, and we are excited to be a part of it again,” he said. ■
