Where do mushrooms come from? Quick, try to explain it, coherently, in a few sentences. It's fungus that, uh ... grows on stuff when it's, uh ... moist. Not so easy, right? That's about to change.
How Does It Grow?, a food education series that was funded by Kickstarter, focuses its first-ever episode on the humble mushroom. The series hopes to make us more "agriculturally literate," a.k.a. less stupid about where our food comes from.
So we hope that, after watching the video above, you'll be able to understand the difference between a spore and a veil the next time you're chomping on a big, beautiful portobello.
