Lobster Mushroom & White Chanterelle Pizza
I took the ferry from Larkspur Landing to the Ferry Building yesterday with my son. We mostly went for the ride, but I couldn't go without seeing what Far West Fungi had on offer. I chose the Lobster mushroom and some White Chanterelles to play with. According to the guy behind the counter, the White Chanterelles have a fruitier, less peppery taste that regular Chanterelles.
I kept the treatment very simple and simply fried them with some salty butter and a little garlic. I enjoyed them right from the pan but did manage to save some of them for the mess of a pizza below (it got dark on me!). Just very thin pizza dough, the mushrooms, and a little grated Gruyere cheese. Yum!
