Help: Morel mushrooms

westofrome | | Jul 13, 2008 03:55 PM

It seems to be morel season, as they have popped up on a few menus here in Alexandria. I have seen them at Rustico (in the Morel and Leek tart, which had about 2 little morels atop some heavy cream in a pie crust for $15... ) and at the new Italian place in Del Ray, La Strada, which unfortunately has them in a veal dish, which I don't eat.

So: does anyone know where I could buy morels (no luck at Whole Foods or MOMs) or of other restaurants featuring them?
