Cultivated maitake (hen of the woods, Grifola frondosa)
On Friday my little maitake (hen of the woods) segment for Last Chance Foods aired on WNYC. Here is Joy Wang's article to accompany the show - Joy is the creator and producer of the program, hosted by Amy Eddings. I admit to being quite starry eyed whenever I walk into the WNYC studios: my little faux-retro kitchen radio is tuned to NPR all day, every day.
You can also click through to my wild mushroom pizza recipe on the WNYC website. It features my book's December chapter, in that end-of year vegetarian menu finale.
