Dear Bay Area Readers: Next week I'll be visiting your neck of the woods to give a couple talks on wild mushroom cookery. I'll be speaking (and showing slides) at the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz on Wednesday, February 16, and again the following night, Thursday, February 17, at the Bay Area Mycological Society in Berkeley. Come on by and say hello.
