Be Merry / Mushroom magic
Fall is fungi season. The markets are full of succulent champignons, Shiitake and other tasty varieties waiting to enhance salads, appetizers and main courses.
The fall season brings with it tastes and scents of wet soil. Among the autumnal vegetables, mushrooms stand out with their delicate colors and irresistible beauty: firm, plump, and rounded. There is something about them that recalls Botticelli's well-endowed women.
