This week on Food Talk with Mike Colameco, Mike checks in with President of the New York Mycological Society and author of Mycophilia Eugenia Bone. Eugenia recaps a recent foraging expedition that resulted in a huge haul of morels! How do forest fires affect morel growth? What are the best ways to clean and prepare morels? Later in the program, Mike is joined by Mike and Amy Mills of the famed 17th Street Bar & Grill, and pitmaster at the Skylight Inn, Sam Jones. Mike, Amy, and Sam are in town for the annual Big Apple Barbecue Block Party; tune in to learn about the event's history, and how the pit masters display their regional pride through their barbecue. Learn about the time and care involved with the art of smoking and grilling!


"If you substitute mushrooms for meat in your recipes, you lose weight... The proteins in mushrooms - they fill you up like you're eating a burger, but without all of the calories." [15:15]
