Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;
From the cover: The book opens with an introduction covering the culinary qualities of over 30 wild and cultivated varieties, instructions on essential preparation techniques and imaginative suggestions for drying and preserving the different kinds. There are many suggestions of how to incorporate the mornings harvest into hearty breakfasts, warming soups and broths and all manner of meat, poultry, game, fish and shellfish dishes for every kind of culinary occasion. Mushrooms have been valued for centuries as an alternative to meat, and vegetarians are discovering once again the value of mushrooms for their first-rate flavour and goodness. Steven Wheeler has devoted a whole chapter to vegetarian recipes, with delights such as Wild Mushroom Brioche with Orange Butter Sauce, Open Cap Mushrooms Stuffed with Hummus and Herbs, and Hash Brown Chicken of the Woods with Potatoes and Onions.
With step-by-step photographs for every recipe, and a glorious colour picture of every finished dish, Mushroom Magic is the most comprehensive, authoritative and tantalizing cookbook yet published.
