Brought in for the Sept. 27, 2010 identification table of the Oregon Mycological Society. Guest Jack Czarnecki (author, “A Cook’s Book of Mushrooms”), mentioned having put several cleaned and chopped Lobster Mushrooms into a pot for slow cooking, and going upstairs, then suddenly realizing the house smelled of lobster. Gave OMS members a quick and easy recipe for Faux Lobster Bisque.
