Library Journal
Whatever your favorite mushroom, this cookbook is sure to deliver an innovative way of serving it, with more than 60 mushroom-inclusive recipes for starters, soups, entr es, sandwiches, and sides as well as a nice assortment of choices for vegetarians. Caterer, instructor, food stylist, and writer Brodeur, a graduate of France's prestigious Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne, combines her culinary and journalistic experience to give a brief history of mushroom cultivation, instruct readers in the use of dried mushrooms, and provide tips for choosing, storing, and cleaning a wide variety of cultivated and wild mushrooms. Numerous "time-saving shortcuts" provide workarounds for those on a tight schedule. A special section on the preparation of various accompaniments (e.g., polenta, marinades) and components (e.g., stock, broth, sauces, fillings) complete the book. Brodeur makes her topic accessible to cooks at all levels of experience; provides clear, straightforward directions; and suggests recipe ingredients one might reasonably have on hand. Recommended for all public libraries.-Courtney Greene, DePaul Univ. Lib., Chicago Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
