More than 100 color photographs capture the unique characteristics and, indeed, the elegance, of each type of mushroom, providing tempting visuals for the 100 dishes featured in the book. An evocative object in itself, A Cook’s Initiation into the Gorgeous World of Mushrooms will be equally at home on a gourmet’s kitchen countertop and a nature lover’s coffee table.

Candied Chanterelles

Delicious folded into a crepe, spooned over ice cream, or topping warm Brie.

Cook 1 1/4 lb cleaned chanterelles in a simple syrup (1 part sugar to
1 part water) for about 10 minutes. Keep simmering the mushrooms in the syrup until they become trans-
lucent and nicely candied. Keep
for up to 2 weeks in the syrup.
