This week, we’re exploring the magnificent world of mushrooms. We sit with Eugenia Bone, author of Fantastic Fungi Community Cookbook to talk about how she got involved in the world of foraging, what surprised her about cooking mushrooms, and what to look for when you’re shopping for them at the grocery store. Then, we sit down with the anthropologist, Dr. Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing to give us a history lesson on Matsutake mushrooms, her first impressions of it, and her journey to find them. Her book is The Mushroom at the End of the World.
