Porcinis, chanterelles and cardoons oh my

Louise | Mar 19, 2005 03:46 PM

I just got back from shopping and today Berkeley Bowl has fresh porcinis ($22/lb), golden chanterelles ($14/lb) and black chanterelles (didn't notice price). Cherimoyas are relatively inexpensive. Also they had fiddlehead ferns, white beets, and cardoons.

What do you do with the buddha's hand citrus? Every time I see it I imagine some exotic and wonderful dish must be possible, but have no idea as to what it might be. Any suggestions or recipes would be much appreciated.

No, I am not in any way connected to the Bowl, other than being a devoted and regular customer.
