Highly Recommended

Recently several visitors of websites have asked me about this book, which is being promoted quite widely across the Internet. So I bought a copy myself to figure out what all the publicity was about.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

T Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

T Mushrooms Stuffed with Fennet and Spinach

Classic Stuffed Mushrooms are a great finger food for a cocktail party. The chef from Horizons loves to invent funky stuffing ideas for mushrooms. This version is an ode to spring with a French accent. If you're not familiar with fennel (pictured in Figure 7-2), it has an understated licorice-like flavor.

T Fresh Mushroom Salad

This dish from Barbetta in New York City (see Appendix A) truly glorifies the mushroom and the praise is well-deserved. Mushrooms are a popular and versatile vegetable with numerous health benefits. They're a great source of dietary fiber as well as many of the B vitamins, which can help support good energy levels. Restaurant owner Laura Maioglio says that this salad, traditionally of Piemonte, Italy, is made with wild porcini mushrooms and white truffles. If you can't obtain fresh porcini, cultivated cremini mushrooms still give you a delicious salad. During truffle season at Barbetta, the salad is served with white truffles hunted by the restaurant's own truffle hounds Drizzled on top of the mushrooms is the quite luxurious porcini olive oil in which porcini mushrooms steep their flavor into the oil as they sit together. Making your own olive oil can save you money because it costs a bundle in the specialty food stores 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms 1 bunch oak leaf lettuce 10...

T Truffle Vinaigrette

Chef Vitaly Paley from Paley's Place in Portland, Oregon (see Appendix A), uses truffles in this vinaigrette to create a truly luxurious, distinct flavor. Truffles are similar to mushrooms in that they're actually a fungus but don't let that fool you they're simply wonderful. You can find truffles at most fine food stores they're worth searching for. You can drizzle this vinaigrette atop steamed vegetables or mixed greens. It contains no cholesterol and only a trace of saturated fat olive oil is one of those heart-healthy sources of monounsaturated fat and can be beneficial for lowering cholesterol levels. Often, a simple dressing is best. Steeping herbs, garlic, and dried mushrooms in oil gives you an excellent base to make your own tasty dressings. Add a little acid, like lemon juice or vinegar, and you're on your way.

Using Several Foods for Animal Protein

There are a number of vegetarian foods that can take the place of meat, depending on what you feel like eating. Baked portobello mushrooms can taste amazingly close to a steak with the same texture and juiciness. Tofu can replace chicken in lots of dishes, especially stir-fried food. Eggplant and mushrooms are other vegetables that replace meat with ease, especially in the southern United States. Eggplant can be stuffed, roasted, marinated, grilled, even fried (not recommended). Combine it with tomato and onions and you have ratatouille.

Some specific fastfood recommendations

I At Domino's Pizza, your child may have two slices of medium cheese, deep-dish pizza with peppers and mushrooms as the toppings. Peppers and mushrooms add very little to the calorie count, so you don't need to consider them in his food plan. Two slices of the pizza provides about 375 kilocalories with 10 grams of fat and about 500 milligrams of sodium. The carbohydrate count is 45 grams. A small green salad with fat-free dressing provides a satisfying, low-calorie addition.

Nutrients That Can Help

In the 1970s and 1980s Berkson used large doses of alpha-lipoic acid to treat Amanita mushroom poisoning, which often precipitates liver failure and death. Alpha-lipoic acid boosts the liver's production of glu-tathione, which aids the breakdown of Amanita toxins and promotes the synthesis of new liver cells. Similarly, selenium is needed for the liver to make several glutathione peroxidase compounds, all potent antioxidants. The herb milk thistle has been used for thousands of years as a liver tonic, and its silymarin extract is now recognized as a powerful antioxidant.

Welcoming French food

French food is always associated with the term haute cuisine, which means fine food prepared by highly skilled chefs. This kind of cooking derives from Italy and was introduced to France by Catherine de Medici. The French added their own subtle techniques to the methods of the Italians from Florence, adopting their use of truffles and mushrooms and preparing lighter sauces.
