Event Details

Mark and Cesar will share their passion for gourmet mushrooms in this masterclass, imparting scientific knowledge about how to get the best out of them, and practical tips and recipes so you can bring delicious umami flavours to your meals.

Before the cooking class, you will visit Article Number 25's mushroom farm, where the mushrooms are grown, which is next door to Mercato Metropolitano, where the cooking lesson will take place. Here, you will learn how to grow gourmet mushrooms from used coffee grounds and how to store mushrooms to get the best from them. You will also be given a bag of coffee grounds already inoculated with oyster mushrooms so that you can grow and harvest your own mushrooms at home.

During the cooking class, you will learn how to cook different gourmet mushrooms supplied by Article Number 25 to bring out their unique textures. We will make:

-            Mushroom bread

-            Mushroom and miso pate

-            Spanish style garlic mushrooms

-            Hungarian mushroom soup

-            Mushroom Risotto


You will then eat what you have made with a complimentary glass of wine.

Cesar is an urban farmer and excellent cook. He has been cooking for large groups of people for over 10 years and growing his own mushrooms for the last 4, establishing the Urban Farming company Article Number 25, which grows different varieties of mushrooms out of used coffee grounds in Elephant & Castle.


Mark Breen is a professional chef and cooking tutor. He works with a number of other cooking schools across the capital. He also runs Seasonal Kitchen through which he offers unique dining experiences and private chef services.
