Tullibee – Hewing Hotel – Gentleman Forager

gft-1-3Locally Foraged Mushrooms | Soy Honey Glaze | Wild Puffed Rice 

Almost too pretty to eat! These are Gentleman Forager‘s local, wild, foraged mushrooms served at Tullibee. Tullibee is part of the Hewing Hotel located in the Minneapolis North Loop neighborhood. It is one of my favorite spots for brunch so I was over the moon to have the opportunity to capture some food photos.

I started working with Gentleman Forager (Mike Kempenich) after attending one of Mike’s guided morel hunts. You can read about that experience by clicking HERE.

Gentleman Forager provides the freshest, most beautiful, mushrooms and wild plants in the forests to the tables of restaurants, innovative chefs, and mushroom lovers. Mike also believes education is a key component to changing the way people think about what they eat and where it comes from. Gentleman Forager teaches people to identify many species of wild Minnesota mushrooms and organizes weekend festivals in the woods. He also plans many “wild” food dinners and events with Minneapolis restaurants and chefs throughout the year. The next festival is the Lobster Mushroom Jamboree!

So creative and so passionate about food. He is a native Australian with an extensive résumé. He spent years in London and New York at high-end restaurants and is now excited about being part of the Minneapolis community. He enjoys working with fresh, local ingredients and is creating beautiful dishes with the Gentleman Forager mushrooms and microgreens. You can read more about him by clicking HERE.
