Publishers Text

'When all's said and written, there's nothing better than field mushrooms that you have gathered yourself, on toast, for breakfast.' Jane Grigson, The Mushroom Feast

The Mushroom Feast is an indispensable classic for all those who love mushrooms. It is a fine, timeless, literary cookbook, Truffles...ceps...morels, they all conjure visions of one of the most intriguing and subtle of all gastronomic treats.

With more than 250 recipes, Jane Grigson describes the preparation of the best fresh and preserved mushrooms. Included are helpful tips for selecting and preserving the best edible mushrooms (both wild and cultivated), the folklore behind the recipes, a brief history of mushroom cultivation, guides to distinguish edible from poisonous fungi for those who venture to pick their own, and line drawings of the twenty-one most common species.

Jane Grigson was one of the leading cookery writers of her generation. In 1968 she began her long association with the Observer Colour Magazine for whom she wrote right up to her death in March 1990.
