Featuring 100 mushroom-centric recipes written by the people who know mushroom cooking best: mushroom lovers! These are the kinds of recipes you will cook for dinner: simple, family-friendly recipes representing ethnicities from all over the world.

The story behind the making of this book is the story of a community. Mycophiles from all over the USA and beyond shared their mushrooms recipes on the Fantastic Fungi movie website. Eugenia worked with 50 plus of those authors to develop their recipes for publication, and in the process, new connections and friendships were made. It’s what Louie, the director of the film calls the “Mycelial connection.” The resulting cookbook is an accurate portrayal of a community with one thing in common: mushrooms!

The cookbook also features five thoughtful and engaging essays written by Eugenia that explore a wide range of topics, including mushroom cooking, mushroom cultivation, mushroom foraging, mushroom nutrition, and the impacts fungi have on agriculture. A range of experts can be found in these pages, from chefs like Alan Bergo (Foragerchef.com) to journalists like Langdon Cook (The Mushroom Hunters), mycologists like Dr. Tom Volk, and charismatic scientist/entrepreneurs like Tradd Cotter. With beautiful full-color photography by noted food photographer Evan Sung, this cookbook will expand your appreciation of mushrooms, their different tastes, and their many, many applications, from flavoring drinks to replacing meat.

“A masterpiece. The Fantastic Fungi Community Cookbook is, by far, the best culinary guide to cooking and pairing mushrooms. . . . This book makes me so hungry, I want to eat it.”
—Paul Stamets, mycologist and author
