My days of mycology were back when I was younger.
odd that you were interested but dislike them. Was it a bad experience or doesn't the taste grab you?
I was best man at a wedding up in NY state years ago. I was shooting the reception afterwards when my gf insisted I stop and try the soup.
I'm not big on soups. but this came from a lady who fully understood my addiction to photography so I set down the Nikons and grabbed a spoon. I never touched a camera till my bowl was empty and LICKED CLEAN.
It was this incredibly richly flavored mushroom soup and I've never had anything half as good before or since.
Sometime next winter I'll use a blender to liquefy a quart or two of good mushrooms and use that (after reducing it and adding clarified butter) as the base stock for a try to duplicate it.
The lady downstairs says growing mushrooms on paper gets a mite smelly but that's easily managed.
