Provenance, Porcinis, and Persillade

Our very own Francois de Melogue got to spend some time pawing through the undergrowth with legendary forager Robert "Guy" Whigham. Check out his blog post at, which will take you from Guy's childhood in Italy to the orchards of Southern California, with a stop at the French village of Oradour-sur-Glane, devastated by WWII but surrounded a soul-restoring forest. The post includes Francois's magnificent Mushrooms Persillade recipe—don't miss it!
