Birthday dinners were a huge tradition in my family growing up, and it's something that I've held on to. I've made a personal tradition of celebrating my brother's birthday with him, with either me or my husband cooking him a special meal. Ben's birthday was the other day, so I invited him to come spend some time with me, and asked what he'd like to eat.

Much like penicillin, the idea for creating custom "weapon" mushrooms to fight illnesses came about on accident. A Tradd Cotter mushroom farmer and researcher in Greenville, SC returned after a vacation to discover two different strains of fungi warring with each other in a petri dish he had thrown out. After taking a closer look, he realized that there were droplets on the invading species, but none on the original. These droplets were metabolites, a mixture the mushrooms create to fight off dangerous microbes. 

One of our goals is to increase awareness of the many ways mushrooms can benefit the world, thus bringing them back into mainstream culture, in more than just culinary arts. A good way to spread awareness of the magnificent mushroom is having numerous people growing them and educating others.
