Well, with a rousing recommendation like "They have never made me vomit," how can I resist? ;-)

I enjoy your blog very much.

Can't say I remember the mushrooms specifically. I would eat almost anything Uncle Al made. Looking back, I think that was the secret to our relationship. I was always confident that Auntie Dora would never let him feed us something that would kill us. What Eddie and I always enjoyed was the "sound" of Uncle Al cooking. He would always be singing, usually songs of his own creation, and always containing the word "fanny."

Stuffed mushrooms... the perfect appetizer. But~ if you serve them with wine does that increase the risk of 'bein seeak?'

Sandi: That would be an explosive pairing (for me, at least). That's why the wine pictured is only illustrated.

Joey: The man definitely knew his audience.

Karen: Don't let the lack of vomiting deter you. They're really good, I swear.

Were I a crass man, I would say something like "the only mushrooms I'd go foraging for are the ones you're not allowed to buy." But I'm not, so: delicious-looking recipe! I only recently embraced the mushroom, and can still only tolerate it stuffed, so this looks right up my alley.

I thought they were awesome! He didn't seem to be very discriminating about what he picked, so there were little mini puff balls in there along with something that looked like bracket fungus (you know, the stuff that grows on tree trunks). The flavor was definitely robust, not like the pale white slices from the supermarket. He just sautéed them up in a little olive oil. Definitely his best dish. Just serve me a plateful and give me a hunk of Italian bread to mop up the juices (if that doesn't kill me, nothing will). What was that song he used to sing? "New York, New York, it's a wonderful town, The Bronx is up and the Battery's down, The people ride in a hole in the ground, New York, New York, it's a wonderful town." I thought he made it up, but it turns out those are really lyrics from a movie called On the Town...
