About an hour after I tweeted that I hoped new rains would bring out the mushrooms, Lew walked into the office with these porcinis. It inspired me to go on a running/mushroom safari that afternoon and I got several more pounds. They look so beautiful in the woods, the rich brown domes pushing up through pine needles. I gave some to friends and we had porcini pasta for dinner. We continue to eat more and more local and wild food. Great book for San Francisco Bay Area foragers is The Flavors of Home, by Margit Roos-Collins, A Heyday Press book unfortunately out-of-print.
