Cascade Mycological Society Cookbook 

The CMS Wild Mushroom Cookbook is the product of two years of recipe collecting and many memorable, potluck dinners that gave CMS members the opportunity to savor many of the dishes in the book while communing with their fellow lovers of fungi. It is really much more than a cookbook. It is a snapshot of our regions fruiting schedule, abundant fungi, and tips and techniques collected by a network of mycology lovers with a lifetime of experiences to share.
