Revelations from the Weird World of Mushrooms

"Revelations from the Weird World of Mushrooms"
Eugenia Bone

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Did you know that mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of fungi? That the biggest living thing on earth is a fungus? That fungi constitute 25% of the biomass? That the most expensive food is a mushroom? That truffle oil is made from chemicals and the bottle costs more to manufacture than the contents? That raw mushrooms are bad for you but cooked mushrooms can be some of the healthiest foods to eat? That mushrooms don't need sunlight to grow, but when they are exposed to sunlight, they become a fantastic source of vitamin D? Eugenia Bone's talk will explain these and many more astonishing facts about mushrooms. Her talk summarizes the weird biology of fungi and their important role in the healthy functioning of life on earth, includes a brief history of mycophagy and medicinal mushrooms, and then delves into the nutritional and culinary world of mushrooms: the good, the bad, and the simply delicious.

Eugenia Bone is a nationally known food writer, whose work has appeared in Food & Wine, Saveur, Gourmet, The New York Times, and Martha Stewart Living, among many others. Her work has been published in numerous anthologies and nominated for a variety of awards, including a James Beard Award. She blogs for the Denver Post, and has published three cookbooks and Mycophilia, a popular science book about mycology. Eugenia is the president of the New York Mycological Society, founded by composer John Cage.
