The Cascade Mycological Society is soliciting contributions for an upcoming cookbook. All proceeds from our cookbook sales will go towards supporting the CMS grant and scholarship programs. The cookbook will be available for sale in fall 2013 and will feature over 100 one-of-a-kind recipes, plus anecdotes, tips, and photographs, featuring foraged, wild-crafted mushrooms from our geographic region. Tell us your best tips for cleaning, gathering, storing, pickling, drying, cooking, serving, decorating with, wearing, harvesting, and preparing mushrooms. Send us the incredible pictures that you would just love to have a wider audience. Now is your chance. Submit your contribution and become a published author.
If we accept your contribution, we will publish your name alongside your submission and invite you to the fall 2013 Cookbook Release Feast in order to celebrate the final publication of our cookbook. It’s sure to be a party to remember.

We found some mushrooms on our hike today that look like morels, but it's been a while since I've been mushroom hunting.. I was wondering if someone could confirm?

Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
