The Mushroom Hunter (Rebroadcast) "There are old mushroom hunters and bold mushroom hunters, but there are no old, bold mushroom hunters." That sentiment is well-known in the community of mushroom hunters because collecting the wide variety of fungi used in so many dishes can reap financial benefits, but it can also be a deadly experience. Today Chef Peter Reinhart brings along a local mushroom hunter and a chef who works for a mushroom growing company. They will teach us the basics about these enigmatic objects that are closely related to mold. Join us for a field guide to mushroom hunting and cooking. Guests Peter Reinhart - Chef-on-Assignment, Johnson and Wales University Reed Patterson - Mushroom Hunter Bob Engel - Chef Liaison, Gourmet Mushrooms Inc. Since this is an encore presentation, we won't be able to include your comments.
