Trail to Table


Barry goes mountain biking with a buddy of his who's a cook at a local restaurant.  The last time they rode together, this buddy was keeping his eyes peeled for mushrooms growing in the wild - mushrooms that he'd take back to work with him to serve at the restaurant.  He was nice enough to give Barry one of his finds that day - a big hunk of sparassis, commonly known as cauliflower mushroom.  It looked so cool and it was incredibly tasty - rich and earthy.  Roasted with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil and served with risotto, it made for a perfect fall dinner.

I still think you could be a great food photographer or an interior decorator/photographer!

Your food pictures look good enough to eat the page! Love, Mom

My boyfriend has a friend who hunts mushrooms and we have benefited from his finds. recently it was a nice bunch of maitake mushrooms and we made an awesome omelet.

p.s. after 8 years I deleted my blog. Still reading others, but really had nothing left that I wanted to share.
