Mushrooms, Edible and Medicinal of New England - 11.18.20
with David Spahr
Learn about using wild mushrooms. The various mushrooms are like vegetables. They have different flavors and widely varying textures, colors, moisture content and water absorbency. Hence, the various species respond to cooking processes differently. We will learn about matching mushroom species to cooking techniques. Also discussed will be the appropriate foods and wines to match with wild mushrooms and which species may be mixed together in a recipe.
