A culinary and historical paean to the venerable "Cantharellus cibarius", this book traces the fragrant fungus through some 5,000 years of history to its current popularity in farmer's markets and gourmet restaurants around the country. Eloquent scientific and literary tributes from Scandinavia, Germany, and Italy, full-color illustrations, and a wealth of fascinating biological, ecological, and geographical facts work together to create a picture of a truly unusual treat.
