3 The Wild Mushroom Cookbook: Recipes From Mendocino
Merry Winslow; Alison Gardner Barefoot Naturalist Press 0990440001 / 9780990440000 PAPERBACK New 
0990440001 Signed by both authors! Brand New; satisfaction guaranteed. Trade paperback binding. Are you a mushroomer? Wonder what to do with your bounty? Getting tired of your old recipes? We are two women (Alison Gardner and Merry Winslow) from Northern California with both mushrooming and cooking experience, and we have written The Wild Mushroom Cookbook, Recipes from Mendocino, which just got delivered from the printer's! The books includes approximately 275 recipes, in chapters devoted to appetizers, dips, spreads, pickles, sauces and gravies, breads, soups, salads and salad dressings, side dishes, entrees, drinks and desserts. There are recipes for commonly eaten wild mushrooms, like chanterelles, oyster mushroom and porcini, and recipes for rather esoteric wild mushrooms, also. Find recipes for the cauliflower mushroom, sweetbread mushroom, blewits, man on horseback, candy caps, beefsteak mushroom, milk caps, shrimp russula, variegated russula, cocorra, grisette, matsutake, hawk wing, yellow feet, hedgehogs, shaggy manes, deer mushrooms, volvariellas, and many more. If they are commonly found in our area, and edible, we tried to include them. Many recipes are interchangeable for several or many different kinds of mushrooms, and if you don't eat wild ones, grocery store mushrooms could be used in many (but not all) recipes.

2 Radical Mycology: A Treatise on Seeing and Working with Fungi
McCoy, Peter Chthaeus Press 0986399604 / 9780986399602 PAPERBACK New 
0986399604 Brand New; satisfaction guaranteed. Trade paperback binding. Fungi are found throughout the world, often playing critical roles at the center of all ecological webs. As culturally important foods and medicines, as well as instigators of religious practices, they have been intimately tied to the development and spread of human societies. And yet, despite their numerous influences on the history of the world, fungi are completely disregarded by the majority of people today. In 2006 Peter McCoy founded Radical Mycology, a grassroots organization dedicated to increasing awareness of the many ways to work with fungi for personal, societal, and ecological health. Nearly a decade later, McCoy has written Radical Mycology to share the wide array of skills and insights that have arisen from the organization?s international work to advance the science of appropriately applied mycology. Shattering commonly held beliefs on the value of the Fungal Queendom, Radical Mycology definitively explores the many reasons that fungi should no longer be ignored but instead honored and embraced for the many gifts they offer. The result is the most comprehensive book on mycology?the science of fungi?ever published. Interwoven with short essays on the lessons of the fungi, Radial Mycology begins with chapters that explore the uniqueness of fungal biology, the critical ecological roles of micro and macro fungi, how to accurately identify mushrooms and mycorrhizal fungi, the importance of lichens as medicines and indicators of environmental quality, and the profound influences that fungi have held on the evolution of all life and human cultures. With this foundation laid, the reader is then equipped to work with the fungi directly. Techniques for making potent fungal medicines, growing fermenting fungi for food, and cheaply cultivating mushrooms using recycled tools (and yet still achieving lab-quality results) are explored in-depth. Subsequent chapters grow far beyond the limits of other books on mushrooms. Detailed information on the principles and practices of natural mushroom farming?largely influenced by the design system of permaculture?is presented along with extensive information on cultivating mycorrhizal fungi and the science of mycoremediation, the application of fungi to mitigate pollution in the environment and in our homes. The book ends with deeper insights into the social effects that fungi present from the reflection of mycelial networks in the design of whole societies to a rigorous examination of the history of psychoactive fungi. Written for the beginner as well as the experienced mycologist, Radical Mycology is an invaluable reference book for anyone interested in Do-It-Yourself (or Do-It-Together) homesteading, community organizing, food security, natural medicine, grassroots bioremediation, and the evolution of human-fungal-ecological relations. More than a book on mushrooms, Radical Mycology is a call to ally with the fungi in all efforts to spawn a healthier world. Heavily referenced and vibrantly illustrated by the author, this unprecedented book will undoubtedly remain a classic for generations to come. Earthlight Books is a family owned and operated, independent bookstore serving Walla Walla, Washington since 1973.
