“The Hero series is all about showcasing one particular vegetable and bringing it into its own, well- deserved limelight. Mushrooms are incredibly exciting as there is a such a huge variety of fungi available in Australia. Their meaty, earthy and umami flavours are sure to delight and I, for one, cannot wait to showcase to Canberrans how creative you can actually get with them.” - Executive Chef Matthew Bentley
