We have a special place in our hearts for books about mushrooms... especially when they are written & illustrated by a remarkable couple who are personal friends of all of us here at Earthy Delights.
Ruth Mossok Johnston and David McCall Johnston have collaborated on a lavishly illustrated cookbook aptly named "The Art of Cooking Morels." This book, combining the talents of the husband & wife team, pairs dozens of recipes featuring the beloved morel mushroom with the gorgeous art of one of America's top illustrators.
Ruth's talents as a cook & recipe developer, as well as veteran food writer and editor, are put to wonderful use, as evidenced in the dozens of original recipes found in this new volume.
You may recognize David's unmistakable and striking style from the Earthy Delights website, products, catalogs and logos. His bold, eye-catching work can be found on every label of our retail line.
"In all my years of reading menus in great restaurants, I can remember no experience to rival the wonderful, mouthwatering anticipation of literally skipping (joyfully) through this delightfully written and illustrated book. It's a labor of love between two people in love who have found the way to delight and do less harm. This is a book I will use often and treasure always."
-Graham Kerr, author of Growing at the Speed of Life: A Year in the Life of My First Kitchen Garden
