Mostly Mushrooms
Let's hear it for the fungi
I didn't grow up a fan. These were never on my table at home. Occasionally, there were some rather nasty canned mushrooms on a pizza but that was about it. However, after moving to the Pacific Northwest, I was introduced to locally cultivated and foraged mushrooms by Kurt of Grandview Mushrooms. He used to sell at Pike Place Market and became a friend and mushroom mentor. Now, I LOVE them!!! and eat almost a pound every week. If you want to be a healthy vegan or vegetarian, or for that matter a healthy omnivore, I'm convinced that these should be a part of your regular diet. We'll also include a salad and perhaps a dessert too.

I'm including recipes that for both cultivated and foraged mushrooms. See if you won't become a fan too!

Onion and Mushroom Filling (can be used for almost anything from a tart, to omelet, to phyllo)
Mushroom bolognese - Mushroom pasta
Mushroom Duxelle (an essential in my frozen pantry) -for Mushroom Risotto

Light and Lovely Lunch
lets take advantage of the seasonal produce
As the weather gets warm and sunshine fills the city I'm drawn to lighter meals. I'll plan each lunch based on the ingredients I can find in the market that week. It might be a wonderful soup, a main dish salad, or a combination of the two. I'll include many dishes that can be transported outside to share with friends for a picnic or just a "let's drink some pink wine and relax" kind of meal.
Think of this as a "blackboard on the sidewalk" kind of offering. I'm not sure what we'll make but whatever it is it will be made with whatever is at the height of the season.
