Mushrooms are extraordinary things. Some-notoriously, frighteningly-can poison us. And some of them-mysteriously, fortuitously-are delicious. Just exactly how our ancestors figured out the difference we'll most likely never know, but today we can rely on experts like Ian Garrone of Far West Fungi to discern between delicious and don't touch. We asked Garrone to give us a tour of some of his favorites in the edible fungal universe, complete with serving tips. And please note: This is a buying guide, not a foraging guide.
