In this 60-minute workshop you will be provided with everything you need to make your own mushroom grow-at-home kit, and Caley Brothers will discuss the basics of low-tech oyster mushroom cultivation. They will talk through how to care, store and get the most from your mushroom kit and the next steps to take following the workshop.
During the workshop there will be an opportunity to explore ways to pick, store and cook your mushroom once they are grown, and also to taste some fine examples of products we make with their Oyster Mushrooms.
Caley Brothers was formed after the founders were inundated with interest and orders for their home-grown oyster mushrooms. With their kitted-out van and weekly trips to Brentford and Covent Garden markets, they supplied the locals with fresh produce all year round – delivering street-by-street 50 years before the first Ocado van was to grace our own streets.
Inspired by their own research and the love of a good recipe they quickly became distracted with how versatile, cost effective and most important of all how deliciously appealing gourmet mushroom were and wanted to incorporate more of them into our diets.
