Mushrooms & Seasonal Eating
While it is difficult, it isn't impossible to continue some sort of locavore eating. Mushrooms are in season right now and are perfect for warm, comforting winter dishes. Added to a stew, being the headliner of a risotto, or a garnish to a perfectly grilled piece of steak, Mushrooms are versatile nuggets of flavor.
Shiitake, Oyster, and King Trumpet, and Chanterelle mushrooms are all in season right now and if you don't believe me, take a look at what Pim, of Chez Pim, found last week in her area here and here.
Seasons and after you give it your location, it will provide you with what is in season globally or locally. It is a great little gadget to have on hand! As for the nuggets of joy in the photo above and to the left, they unfortunately were not sourced by me in a forest but instead from my local Whole Foods. They found their fate in a bowl of risotto along side a nicely grilled piece of steak.
