A sure sign of spring is the appearance of morel mushrooms. Try them roasted with fresh herbs and a touch of crème fraîche, then spooned over toasted bread for an elegant, yet easy, starter or first course.
Special equipment: You will need a pastry brush for this recipe.
What to buy: If you can’t find fresh morel mushrooms, substitute fresh porcinis or chanterelles.
It's Halloween party season, which means candy corn, punch bowls with floating eyeballs, lots of pumpkins...
