Cascade Mycological Society Wild Mushroom Cookbook Available Online

The Cascade Mycological Society Wild Mushroom Cookbook is now available for sale online.

It is really much more than a cookbook. It is a snapshot of our regions fruiting schedule, the local’s favorite abundant fungi, and tips and techniques collected by a network of mycology lovers with a lifetime of experience to share.

It is organized by season and contains 175 pages filled with beautiful color photographs. It is printed on long-lasting 100# Gloss Book stock with lay-flat spiral binding. The contents are thoroughly and thoughtfully indexed.

Most of the recipes were tested at one of our memorable, pot luck dinners (like the Spring Potluck/Morel Stuffing Party/Grill Out) that gave CMS members the opportunity to savor many of the dishes in the book while communing with their fellow lovers of fungi.

All profits from the sale of the book will go towards supporting CMS grant and scholarship programs.

It is dedicated to Freeman Rowe, whose love of learning and teaching the beauty and diversity of fungi has touched so many of us.
