1. The Mushroom Lover's Mushroom Cookbook and Primer – Amy Farges


No one has done more to make mushrooms infamous in the United States as author Amy Farges. She is a food writer and co-owner of the national mushroom distributor Aux Delices Des Bois.

It has some gorgeous photographs that will leave anyone drooling.

Stimulation photos along with each recipe call to mind the basic sensuality that only mushrooms can evoke in an individual.

3. Mushroom Cookbook: Recipes for White and Exotic Varieties – Mimi Brodeur


Most mushroom cookbooks on the market focus on only a few common varieties found in your everyday market, especially button mushrooms: not so this one. From appetizers to soups and main dishes, recipes blend in all kinds of mushrooms - and an index makes it easy to locate dishes for specific kinds of mushrooms. Herbed Veal Roast with Exotic Mushrooms and Cheesy Portabella Mushroom Sandwich are only a few of the dishes which are unusual and appealing. Color photos might have added even more attention to finished dishes, but the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. 


These top three mushroom cookbooks with their colorful covers make great coffee table additions as well. However, you will find yourself using them so frequently that you will not be able to keep them out of the kitchen. Buy these cookbooks online at
