"Nature alone is antique and the oldest art a mushroom."

-Thomas Carlyle, Writer

The refrigerator light goes on...

One of the first restaurants I worked in served this mushroom salad. It was very elaborately prepared tableside by the waiters with the flourish of chopping, mixing and plating in front of the wide eyed customers. At the time I hated mushrooms, but back then fresh mushrooms were actually something of a novelty. One taste of this delicious salad and my life was changed forever.
