The enchanting Chanterelle by Devon Winter.  In this article, the author gives precise instructions on how to identify and harvest these gourmet goodies.  The author also includes recipes for Chanterelle casserole, Chanterelle and wild rice soup, beef-less Chanterelle stroganoff, and even a Chanterelle salad.
