From black trumpets and chanterelles to chicken of the woods — everything was coming up mushrooms Wednesday evening at Thorne Hall.

As part of the ongoing “Meet What You Eat” series, a Locavore Dinner was held in both Moulton Union and Thorne Hall, where the menu comprised foods available locally.

Dining Service invited New York Times food writer Michael S. Sanders to present an informal educational session about his hobby, “Foraging For Mushrooms in the Maine Woods.”

During dinner in Thorne, students and other diners were able to talk with Sanders about his specialty. Bowdoin Organic Garden Manager Katherine Creswell was also on hand with some of the garden's produce to answer questions.
