Mushroom Cookoff

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The cookoff is one of the most exciting events of the festival. Chefs compete for best mushroom dish and festival attendees are able to sample all of the dishes. Past years have included Puffball Pistachio Ice Cream, Porcini Pancakes with Candycap Whipped Cream, and last year’s winner was a Chanterelle Custard Tart. Some of the plated presentations by the chefs resemble little gnome gardens and feature mushroom-themed decorations to garner audience favor and votes.  Chefs travel from all over the United States to compete in this highly competitive and delicious event. Cowboys and Indians Magazine named the Telluride Mushroom Festival one of the 15 best foodie festivals in the West. 

All attendees of the Telluride Mushroom Festival get a ticket to the Cookoff with their full pass. Members of the public can also acquire Cookoff tickets for only a suggested $10 donation, while supplies last. The cookoff will be open to the public at 1:30.
