Delicious, picturesque, and just a bit mysterious, mushrooms are represented by an incredibly wide range of species, appearing in all shapes and sizes and colors. It would be hard to imagine a more comprehensive guide than this one, which identifies 200 essential mushroom varieties, with information on their characteristics, classification, and culinary uses. Illustrations and color photos appear throughout, along with thorough scientific and historical background, a guide to picking mushrooms (without poisoning oneself), plus 40 recipes.
