Ah yes, ’tis the season. The season for mushrooms. Don’t these look like they were just picked? But no. No truffle hunting pigs in this house (or truffle sniffing dogs for that matter).
The inspiration came from Cocolat, a truffle and chocolate bakery that existed many years ago in the SF Bay Area. I used to work for them and I loved how the mushrooms looked and tasted. And they are really quite easy. If you don’t have this cookbook, and you love chocolate and desserts, you might want to think about getting this one. It’s an “oldy” but a goody.
