Mushroom!


Recently we were gifted this large chicken of the woods mushroom that was found in suburban Washington, DC. Last fall I found lots of wild mushrooms in Rock Creek Park within the city. Varieties included chicken of the woods, oyster and puff ball.

Over the last few days we ate roasted mushroom for breakfast, lunch, dinner and shared some with friends. Some of what we ate-
mushroom and scrambled tofu
roasted potato, French bean and mushroom salad
mushroom lettuce and tomato sandwich
mushroom curry

Check out mycologist Paul Stamets lecture on TED about how mushrooms can save the world.

Early summer I heard Li Edelkoort give a autumn and winter 2009-2010 trend presentation based on mushrooms as an influence on all aspects of design from architecture to fashion.
