What you’ll find inside
The Mushroom Hunter’s Kitchen will open up an entire new world of cooking with mushrooms that you never imagined possible.
From pickles to pork belly, granola to gravlax — even cake and ice cream — you’ll find food for any occasion. 120 recipes strike a happy balance between innovative new ideas and updated classic comfort foods.
The book focuses squarely on wild mushrooms, with common, well-known, and widely-loved edibles, like porcini, morels, and chanterelles, getting a lot of the attention. Many lesser-known varieties are also explored, and most recipes contain notes on mushroom substitutions to make them as flexible and adaptable as possible. The food is approachable and delicious, and recipes range from simple enough for a beginner to teaching new techniques to seasoned home cooks.
Mushroom newbies and expert foragers alike will broaden their mushroom knowledge and find plenty of new cooking ideas for whatever mushrooms are available, whether from the forest or their local market.
