The Magic of Mushrooms

Presented by the Berry Good Food Foundation, the Future Thought Leaders series is an engaging portfolio of multidisciplinary programs that present varying viewpoints on sustainable food-related topics. For their 10th program with UCTV, the focus is mushrooms.

Mushrooms play a crucial role in our natural ecosystem; they have been used medicinally by indigenous cultures for centuries, their nutritional value and hearty fiber make them an excellent meat substitute for chefs, and the mainstream medical community is evaluating psilocybin benefits in combating PTSD, anxiety, addiction, and other conditions.

Michelle Ciccarelli Lerach hosts spiritual healer Matthew Alvarado, Mindful Mushrooms owner Ivo Fedak, CEO of M2 Ingredients Jan Hall, Mark Kalia, M.D., Gordon Saxe, M.D., Ph.D., UCSD, environmental scientist Danielle Stevenson, and co-owner and chef at The Plot and Wrench & Rodent Seabasstropub Davin Waite for a discussion on the amazing impacts of mushrooms. Learn how mushrooms are grown, how modern medicine is embracing their many uses, and how cutting-edge chefs are imagining how they appear in restaurant dining rooms.
