The fascinating world of fungi!

Mushrooms are mysterious. Martina Meier and Gerry Amstutz set out to explore the beauty and aromatic possibilities of these wondrous organisms. Creativity cook Maurice Maggi has assembled a composition of Vegetarian and Vegan recipes sorted by seasons that can be prepared with wild as well as cultivated mushrooms. How about an oyster mushroom and peach skewer, or a forest risotto with blueberries?

Accompanied by the profound knowledge of mushroom expert Marionna Schlatter and biological background information by Franziska Witschi, this book is a multi-faceted homage to the mushroom.
