Autumn beckons and we await the first fungal fruitings! In the meantime, the FFSC Culinary Committee welcomes you to celebrate the season with our annual Fall Mushroom Dinner.  Chef Bob Wynn and the Culinary Committee are cooking up a scrumptious menu for the evening. Menu is evolving, and will feature multiple hors d’oeuvres served with an autumnal aperitif, followed by Porcini Chicken Paprikash with vegie version, choice of noodles or rice and haricots vert beans with craterellus for the main course. Dinner will come to a sweet ending with Sticky Ginger Toffee Pudding and cream. Mmmmmm...
