Did you know that September is National Mushroom Month?  Neither did I until I became part of the Mushroom Masters: A Tournament of Taste, sponsored by the USA’s Mushroom Council, Mushrooms Canada and the Australian Mushroom Growers Association.  These three organizations have partnered up with Tastespotting to celebrate by hosting a four week competition featuring some of the most talented food bloggers on the web.  For each week during the month of September, three different bloggers from each country have created original recipes using that week’s featured mushroom variety. Throughout the competition you’ll be able to find the bloggers’ complete recipes on their respective country’s sites.  You’ll also be able to vote for your favorites on Tastespotting.

Mushroom Masters kicked off in week one with the Portobello Playoffs.  Next, there was the Button Battle.  This week, we have the Shiitake Showdown, with yours truly representing Team USA.  My talented and creative competitors for this soiree are Aussie, Christie from Fig and Cherry and Canada’s Elizabeth from Guilty Kitchen.  But, enough about them.  Let’s talk about me, me, ME!
