Wild Mushroom Safari
The unusual summer rain of 2013 made a number of vineyard owners a bit concerned. They don't want their fruit getting too wet. Fortunately, it was a short bit of wet and things dried up quickly.
But one man was happy about this unexpected turn - our Chef Rick Vargas has picked local, wild mushrooms for 35 years. We try to tell him NOT to show too much enthusiasm around our grape growers. Pretend to be at least only slightly over the moon. Why? One of the biggest mid-year harvests in Sonoma in years.
Here we see the results of Mother Nature's weather experiment. Now, what happens when Rick starts cooking with them?
