After my failed attempt to purchase mushrooms from Far West Fungi last week - due to a mushroom farmer with integrity - I hauled up to Moss Landing again this morning and purchased three pounds of freshly harvested mushrooms. Straight from their farm to my table in about twelve hours. Thanks, Erik, these will be much better than week-old mushrooms!
I opted for the canary oyster mushrooms, for its vibrant, sunny hue, and the bear's head mushroom, for its fluffy texture. Look for recipes and photos tonight, but the bear's heads will be featured in my individual mushroom soufflés while the canaries will be served atop a mushroom pâté that I made last night. I know I'm a kitchen geek, but I can not wait to get home and get cooking.
