To Do: Organic Mushroom and Risotto Cooking Class

Intimidated by risotto? This free demo at the Callowhill Whole Foods is for you.

Has anyone else tried to master making the perfect pot of risotto and been dissatisfied with either crunchy or mushy results? It’s a tricky, delicate formula (or I’m a disaster cook—so be it). In any event, the Callowhill Whole Foods is hosting a free organic mushroom and risotto cooking demo on February 7th. Attendees will learn how to make mushroom stock using dried organic mushrooms like shiitake, porcini, chanterelles and morels. The class will also demonstrate the finer points of making smooth and creamy risotto. To RSVP, email or sign up at the store’s customer service booth by February 5th.

FREE, February 7, 6 to 7:30 p.m., Callowhill Whole Foods, 2001 Pennsylvania Ave., Philadelphia
