A celebration of mushrooms and fungi - from folklore to foraging. Plus a collection of more than 65 deeply delicious recipes where fabulous fungi take centre stage.
Mushrooms come in an array of sizes, shapes and colours, making them a fascinating ingredient to cook with. From regular humble cultivated button and oyster mushrooms, to wild mushrooms such as chanterelles and porcini, and not forgetting the VIP of the ingredient world, the truffle, this book covers them all. So much more than a tasty side for a fried breakfast, there are many things that make mushrooms a wonder-ingredient.

Satisfying Soups and Stews, like Thai Mushroom Soup or Pumpkin and Lentil Stew. Hearty and delicious meat and fish dishes like Beef Porcini Ragu with Pappardelle and White Fish Fillet with Wild Mushrooms. Light Salads and Vegetable Dishes include Fennel, Mushroom and Crab Salad and Wild Mushroom Carpaccio.
