Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics reveal that mushrooms were thought to bring immortality and that only the pharaohs, who were thought of as godlike, could receive this privilege. Commoners, therefore, were not even allowed to touch mushrooms.
Mushrooms were known to be such a powerful aphrodisiac that they became infused into important rituals and ceremonies. The Normans, during the 11th century C.E., traditionally prepared a wedding dish that contained a pound of mushrooms to be fed to the groom only.
When preparing our mushroom concoction, The Bisbee Grille saute's its mushroom in a mixture that includes Dave's Electric Beer. Dave's story begins in Bisbee about 22 years ago. Arizona had just legalized microbreweries and “Electric” Dave applied for the state’s first brewer’s license. He worked hard to perfect his beer recipes and earned many admirers along the way. We use his blend to "electrify" our mushrooms, which makes for a great appetizer before your main course.
