The MMHC Cookbook

The MMHC is planning to produce a cookbook.  MMHC chefs submit your mushroom recipes to if you would like to have your recipe included.  The Cookbook Committee will be selecting recipes for inclusion.

Feel free to include a photo/s of the dish and/or the mushrooms.

Please follow the below format when you submit a recipe:

Optional comment paragraph (possibly listing number served, alternate mushrooms, etc.)

For Example:

Black Trumpet Spread

This has frequently been served as an appetizer at MMHC events.

2 cups dried black trumpets (Craterellus cornucopiodes)

Hot tap water to cover

~4 tbs butter

8 oz. goat cheese

2 baguettes

Extra virgin olive oil for spritzing

Soak trumpets in hot tap water for 15-20 minutes. Wring out trumpets and reserve soaking water for other recipes.  Saute trumpets in butter until just beginning to brown.  Place trumpets and goat cheese in a food processor; process until smooth.

Slice baguettes into ¼ to 3/8 inch slices.  Toast then spritz with olive oil on one side.  Serve with a knife for spreading.

Although I have always prepared this with plain trumpets, an alternate approach would be to mince some garlic or shallots for sautéing with the mushrooms.
