As host of INSP network’s nation-spanning “State Plate” series of food shows, Hicks is set to feature the celebrity ingredient of the Mushroom Capital of the World, according to a Lancaster Online report by Jennifer Kopf.
Mushrooms will join Pennsylvania Dutch food favorites like pretzels, chow chow, and shoofly pie during an Oct. 6 episode of “State Plate,” thanks to the expertise of Peter Gray, grower manager of Kennett Square’s prominent Phillips Mushroom Farms.
