If you live in the Pacific Northwest and like to move through the mountains and/or valleys, enjoy cooking, and mostly eating amazing food? THEN, be sure to click the link to get your very own copy of “Cooking Wild Mushrooms”. Many of you out there that ride the Cascade snow, most likely have heard of Starfish Magazine, a snowskate mag that was the creation of a local friend, Tim Leavitt. Meeting Tim years ago, he first impressed me with his very high level of riding on the snow using a snowboard or snowskate. Next, I was impressed with his ability to organize and host super fun snowskate events. But, the biggest shocker was finding he his a wizard in the forest with mushrooms (a mycologist), and now to see what he and his family (and good friends) do with the bounty, simply blew me away!!! If mushrooms are a part of your life (or you are getting into picking them and wondering what to do after the find), I highly recommend getting a copy of this latest book of culinary mushroom masterpieces, as I have watched people come into the Aardvark Express (a local Snoqualmie Pass hiker/traveler haven for excellent food) for a snack after gathering a 5 gallon bucket of Mushrooms (showing their skill/bounty), then flip through Tim’s book, “Cooking Wild Mushrooms”, and be simply stunned with the delectable dishes PAGE after PAGE… Like the Soup recipe for my new favorite Bear’s Head Tooth. Again, click the link and get your copy of “Cooking Wild Mushrooms” for your coffee table.
Also, just for fun, the video below is a fun day in the mountains with Tim Leavitt at his “Serpentine Massacre” which happens every year in March.
