Mushrooms Demystified : A Comprehensive Guide to the Fleshy Fungi
Mushrooms Demystified : A Comprehensive Guide to the Fleshy Fungi
by David Arora
This is the be-all and end-all of mushroom books! Truly an encyclopedia of mushroom facts and lore, lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs, literally everything you need to know about mushrooms, edible or not. Arora has taught mycology for close to twenty years and has hunted and photographed mushrooms across the North American continent. Threaded through the book are his wry and humorous observations and comments, making what could have been a rather dull, "just-the-facts, ma'am" reference book into a really enjoyable read. The stunning photographs of the incredible variety of fungi are fascinating and eye-opening, and while the author gives clear and factual information, the mysterious allure of mushrooms in their countless shapes, sizes and colors is only increased by this huge and delightful book. --Mark Hetts -

Truffles: Ultimate Luxury, Everyday Pleasure
Truffles: Ultimate Luxury, Everyday Pleasure
by Rosario Safina, Judith Sutton
Book Description:
Elegance at every meal–cooking at home with truffles 

Truffles have long reigned as the gold standard of edible funghi, the supreme culinary delicacy. Yet increased availability of derivative products–truffle oils, pastes, and flour–which deliver the flavor without the cost, have given this luxurious ingredient a new accessibility and fresh creative possibilities. Written by the worlds largest truffle importer and a veteran chef, this new book explains truffle mystique, history, and varieties, and provides all the information needed to buy and prepare truffles and truffle products. With more than 125 recipes for all occasions, including signature dishes from such star restaurants as Daniel, Babbo, Pichalre, and Emerils, it illustrates how versatile, simple, and affordable cooking with truffles can be. Featuring such comfort food dishes as Penne with Truffle Cheese (the ultimate "mac and cheese"), this lavishly photographed cookbook/guide reveals how one of the worlds culinary luxuries can now grace any table, any time.
