Zesty Garden- October 3

Oct 4, 2013

The "king," the "trumpet," "the hedgehog." These are all names given to wild mushrooms by those who forage for them. It’s a world that author and mushroom forager Langdon Cook knows well. In his new book “Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America," we are introduced to the subculture of mushroom pickers and buyers who are responsible for finding the wild mushrooms that end up on our plates.  And, in Petals and Prose, Nancy Williams reads an essay about raising honeybees in the Ozarks.
