What the experience includes:

Our cooking classes are a one-of-a-kind experience. You’ll be cooking a meal all focused on the farm’s produce we are visiting. We bring all the equipment to have a fully functioning kitchen on a farm!


What we’ll be cookin:

This class is all about mushrooms! Mushrooms have a whole slew of health benefits, from being anti-oxidant rich, immune-boosting, to potentially protecting against dementia. You’ll hear from NM Fungi owner, Estavan, about why mushrooms are nutrient-dense and great for the planet!

You’ll learn basics techniques for cooking mushrooms, what to pair mushrooms with, and how to choose and store mushrooms. We’ll be using a variety of specialty mushrooms that they grow including: Oysters (Black Pearl, Blue, Golden and Pink), Chestnut, Lion’s Mane, Pioppino, Shiitake, Enoki and Reishi.

*Recipes can fit most dietary restrictions/allergies as long as you let us know before hand when checking out!


More about NM Fungi:

The Urban Mushroom Farm is nestled between Albuquerque’s Northeast Heights and Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. We offer a seasonal variety of gourmet and medicinal mushrooms, all while observing organic growing practices. Our mushrooms are grown in a temperature/humidity controlled indoor fruiting chamber and are picked fresh weekly!

Estevan Hernandez, ‘The Man Behind the Mushrooms’ – With over 10 years experience in cultivating fungi, Owner/Grower Stavi, prides himself in providing the healthiest and happiest mushrooms as he personally ensures the vitality of every block of mycelium. Mushrooms are truly his passion – it has been a dream come true to provide his home community with our fresh toadstools


Who is this class for?

This class is for someone who wants a unique cooking experience. You’ll learn about local farms, sustainability, nutrition, and cooking techniques. Our recipes focus on teaching you how to utilize and cook with seasonal produce, but it doesn’t matter if you are a vegetarian, vegan, or carnivore – we all need to eat more plants!

Whether you’re a beginner or more seasoned cook, everyone can learn from our classes. We always have extra staff who can help with additional instruction if needed.
