Win Espresso Mushroom Voucher and CafeDirect Coffee with KidsChaos

Chaos writes:

You may have been following our latest ‘growing’ kitchen fun on twitter; we’ve been overwhelmed by this amazing phenomena – growing our own mushrooms on the kitchen windowsill…

This fabulous invention, the Espresso Mushroom Kitchen Garden has been the talk of our kitchen – This little ‘garden’ uses recycled coffee grounds and we grew our own oyster mushrooms in just two weeks.

Both kids have really enjoyed the experience of spraying the mushrooms with water, and rushing in from school to see how they’ve grown. 8yo even wrote a recipe (pictured) which we duly followed, when our mushrooms were ready to harvest –  fried them up, served with chopped parsley on a couple of slices of toast. De-Lish-ious….

We had been talking to Alex at Espresso Mushroom about just how much we wanted to tell the world about their mushrooms, and have joined forces with them and our friends at Cafédirect to offer you the chance to win this fab prize. We have some tasty espresso coffee from Cafédirect and an Espresso Mushroom Kitchen Garden gift voucher, so you can WIN and grow your own Pearl Oyster Mushrooms – it’s such fun!

This prize draw has now closed, thank you for all of your entries, the lucky winner is Eileen from Staffordshire. 🙂 xx

    I don’t tend to have mushrooms on their own, but I love them on top of pizzas or in stir fry or pasta!

  2. Peter Gilby

    With a white wine and cream sauce over some pork fillet!

    Is that a whole recipe 🙂

    I would just lightly pan fry them in butter and season with a touch of salt and pepper and serve on top of a nice crusty bread roll.


    Bit of garlic, butter and some creme fraiche on top of toast, yum!

  5. Debbie

    I would make a big bowl of creamy mushroom soup with plenty of garlic and a tot of sherry


    I’d make a port and stilton sauce and add the fried mushrooms and eat them with some nice fresh bread

  7. Bernadette K

    Really simply and purely. Slice them up, saute them with a tiny bit of garlic, and serve on hot buttered toast 🙂 Yum!

  8. Maria Jane Knight

    I would fry them and then add the to the top of a slice of cheese on toast! Yum!

    I would fry them in olive oil and add a small amount of garlic

    I would fry them in butter with a fresh black pepper and a little garlic. Those beauties don’t need any fuss!

  11. Ali Thorpe

    Following on Facebook. So, I already mentioned the butter, garlic and pepper. I would serve them with a few beautiful new potatoes, Jersey Royals if the timing is right!

    I love mushrooms on toast. Just slice and fry in butter and oil and add some mustard. Lovely.
