This week on Why We Cook ChefSmartyPants recounts her adventures joining a mycology club: hitting the forests, foraging an armful of fungus, then going at it with microscopes, magnifying glasses, Mycology tomes, and other research tools. Chef Erica eventually becomes frustrated at the pace of the mycologist’s crew, ponders a potential dabble in hunting, and finally finds a giant delicious mushroom on a stroll through the wilderness.
