Morel Mushroom Recipe Round-Up
We're in the midst of morel season, the short-but-magical spring window when these honeycomb-capped mushrooms appear in the mountains, at farmers markets and on menus around town.
Last night, The Modern Hotel served a special dish (pictured above) that featured fresh morels, perfectly cooked sweet peas, spinach and chewy farro in a buttery broth.
Inspired by this beautiful bowl of spring, I rounded up a few other simple morel recipes from around the web. Whether you snag a bag of these delicacies at the farmers market, or are lucky enough to have a forraging friend who's willing to part with a few, make sure to get your hands on some fresh morels before they're gone.
