MUSHROOM GASTRONOMY by Krista Towns has sold to Michelle Branson at Gibbs Smith.
This new book is a cookbook and culinary resource showcasing twenty-five varieties of mushrooms, both foraged and cultivated, packed with recipes for appetizers, soups, main dishes, stocks, desserts, and even cocktails, beautifully photographed and infused with a passion for mushrooms that will delight, inform, and intrigue.
“This is the celebration of mushrooms you need in your life. The recipes, whether they call for common or exotic varieties, are mouth-watering, the photographs and illustrations capture the unique beauty and culture of fungi, and the information will encourage you to pick up that strange-looking mushroom next time you’re at the farmer’s market and make something delicious and beautiful. Maybe while drinking a mushroom cocktail – who knew?” The Rights Factory agent Kathryn Willms says. “I’m so happy for Krista – she’s a mushroom forager, a recipe developer, a photographer, and part of a lively mushroom community. She was quite simply meant to write and publish this book.”
MUSHROOM GASTRONOMY is set for publication in Fall 2024.
