Wild Mushrooms A Cookbook And Foraging Guide
Destined to be a leading authority in its class, this volume adds immeasurable value to the handful of wild mushroom cookbooks on the market. It manages to preserve the best of these with the conviviality of a community cookbook but adding a professional and comprehensive focus with enough wit and wonder to provide an invaluable resource for beginners as well as seasoned mushroom hunters.
The globally-inspired recipes range from practical to unusual, with basic techniques like grilling, pickling, and drying elevated by more fanciful creations, including Chanterelle Apricot Sorbet, Porcini and Gruyère Gougeres, Savory Matsutake Daikon Cake, and Candy Cap Mushroom Popsicles. Interspersed with pro tips and stunning, minimalist images of each species are biographies and anecdotes from passionate mushroomers the Blizzards have come to know in their years attending festivals and joining forays across the country.
