Take a look at this absolutely phenomenal pizza from The Iron Kettle, one more of the wonderful items being offered at the Morel Mushroom Festival Tasting.  I understand that they will be doing on-site cooking demonstrations.  Remember only the first 100 people can buy tickets to the tasting, you won't want to miss this!!

Can you find these Morel Mushrooms!!

Would love to find these guys on the guided hunt at the Morel Mushroom Festival on May 11th in Lewiston, MI!!

Thanks to all of you who have responded to the posting yesterday we already have had 6 reservations for the hunts.

Did I mention the craft show - we have "antler lady" returning this year.  She makes the most amazing items for the home from candlestick holders, mirrors to tables.  For only $1.00 you can check out all of the great items that will be available.  I will be highlighting more individuals from the craft show.

Mushroom hunt update - when you sign up for a hunt not only do you get guided on the hunt (we are the only festival in Michigan that offers a guide) you will also get maps, mushroom information, mushroom novelty license, bags to store the mushrooms in that you find and if you are among the first 100 an entry into the mushroom tasting.  The Guided hunts are $15.00 and Pro hunts are $30.00 and leave at 8:00am and 11:00am on Saturday May 11th from the Lewiston Elementary School located on Montmorency Street in Lewiston.
