Langdon Cook - Nature's Secret Pantry: Wild Edible Fungi from Patch to Plate

Doors open at 6:30 pm at the Center for Urban Horticulture. Come early and bring any mushrooms you want identified!

Explore the Pacific Northwest's wooded haunts with award-winning author and culinary adventurer Langdon Cook, on a quest to find the region's most sought after wild mushrooms for the table. Langdon will present a year of mushroom hunting in field and kitchen, from spring through winter. Visit patches near and dear to all of us as well as more remote and far-flung regions known only to longtime foragers. Slides of fungi in their habitat and in finished dishes will have you reaching for your boots, baskets, and saute pans. Q&A and book signing to follow.

Langdon Cook is the author of The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America, winner of the 2014 Pacific Northwest Book Award and described by The Wall Street Journal as a "rollicking narrative... delivering vivid and cinematic scenes on every page." Cook's newest book is Upstream: Searching for Wild Salmon, from River to Table, selected by Amazon as a "Best Book of the Year." His writing appears in numerous publications and has been nominated for a James Beard Award (2016) and a Pushcart Prize. Langdon lives in Seattle with his wife and two children.
