Summer in Seattle Eye Candy...

each year, i look forward with much envy to receiving my weekly, and sometimes daily dose of wild mushrooms. in this case today, it was the yellow chanterelles and lobster mushrooms. they grow wild in the northwest and never seem to dull my thoughts of cooking with them. i wanted to share these beauties with you with hopes that it may inspire you to obtain some and get cooking!

fresh yellow button and medium sized chanterelles

a small palmfull of chanterelles moments after they arrived...

moments after that, they were on a dish or stuffed Pacific Skate Wing!
