Wet weather is good for mushroom hunters.
All this wet weather has brought a nice showing of mushrooms in New Mexico. This enthusiast had the good fortune to attend a dinner party where the featured item was an eight pound Cauliflower mushroom from the south east area of the Valle Grande in Jemez mountains. A beautiful tangy and earthy scent emanated from this specimen, which was regarded by many to have the segmented appearance of a brain. It sliced like a Stilton, loose and hearty. It was cooked to perfection in a broth by the host who then proceeded to feature the fungus in a lovely Beef stroganoff on egg noodles. A chardonnay complemented the delicate, buttery flesh of this outstanding find.
Disclaimer: do not eat anything without the guidance of an experienced mushroom hunter.
