Valley Bounty: Local Mushrooms
Local mushrooms can be found at winter farmers’ markets and several grocers. This mushroom bake is a popular appetizer for my family gatherings: Use any mild mushroom, preferably oysters (about 2 pints), and a small oven-safe dish. Roughly chop mushrooms and drizzle with olive oil spiked with hot pepper oil. Add salt and pepper, stir, and top with fresh chevre. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 and serve warm on a sliced baguette.
