Mushrooms are by their very nature mysterious ingredients. Beautiful, strange, slightly scary — in some cases very scary — whole cultures avoid mushrooms out of fear. Obviously I don’t fall into that category.
I’ve yet to meet a mushroom I hated, although those slimy canned things in the mega-mart may qualify. Whether it is the majestic porcini or the simple button mushroom, I love them all. Below are my, as always, idiosyncratic mushroom recipes.
