Description

The button mushroom better make room on the shelf. We're seeing a growing number of supermarkets displaying types of mushrooms that are leaving shoppers scratching their heads. Home cooks are buying previously obscure species from growers and gatherers at local farmers markets and adventurous cooks are collecting all manners of edible mushrooms in the woods. People are asking the question, "Now that I have it, what do I do with it?" Home cooks and chefs alike will need a book and an educated guide to walk them through the basics of cooking everything from portobellos and morels to chanterelles and the increasingly available, maitake, oyster, and beech mushrooms.

Shroom is that book and Chef Becky Selengut is that tour guide. In a voice that's informed, but friendly and down-to-earth, Selengut's Shroom is a book for anyone looking to add mushrooms to their diet, find new ways to use mushrooms as part of a diet trending towards less meat, or diversify their repertoire with mushroom-accented recipes inspired from Indian, Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisines, among others. Recipes include maitake tikka masala, caramel-braised king trumpet mushrooms with bao buns and cabbage slaw, and simpler fare such as mushrooms and grits with fried egg. Written in a humorous voice, Becky Selengut guides the home cook through 15 species-specific chapters on mushroom cookery with the same levity and expertise she brought to the topic of sustainable seafood in her IACP-nominated 2011 book Good Fish. Selengut's wife and sommelier April Pogue once again teams up to provide wine pairings for each of the 75 recipes.

        Starred review from December 1, 2014

        In this approachable and humorous guide to cooking with 15 types of mushrooms (e.g., king trumpet, morel, lobster), chef and cooking instructor Selengut (Good Fish) hopes to allay fears of fungi. She answers common questions about buying, cleaning (plunging a dirty chanterelle in water isn't taboo), storing, and eating mushrooms but wisely steers clear of foraging advice, which is best left to experts and mycological societies. Each chapter includes five recipes that are presented in order from easy to advanced, with suggested wine pairings. Banh mi sandwiches with red curry roasted portobellos and pickled vegetables, silken scrambled eggs with shaved Alba white truffles, and other dishes, accompanied by gorgeous color photographs, will attract not only curious, possibly mushroom-averse home cooks, but also experts seeking inventive new preparations. VERDICT A delight to read and cook from, this is one of the most welcoming and unintimidating mushroom books to hit shelves in ages.
