It’s bloody hot and dry out there, this day three of Foraging for Lunch. No rain, no ‘shrooms. We almost struck out this morning–our usual special spots were bare! But luck was on our side. We finally found our chanterelles in a hard-to-get-to spot deep in the woods, up a steep slippery bank. So, lunch today is two cool salads: Steamed chanterelles tossed with chewy croutons and an herbaceous vinaigrette. And peeled and sliced red, ripe Jersey tomatoes anointed with big spoonfuls of parsley sauce. We are just going to eat our way through this heat wave—why change now.
