This second edition of The Cookbook of North American Truffles: Recipes for Forest Treasures, put together by the North American Truffling Society is interesting, informative and contains a wide selection of recipes mushroom lovers will greatly enjoy, with or without truffles.
I would love to be able to give this book a 5-star rating. The content is unique, the recipes downright drool-worthy, the book well written and informative. This guide even includes photos of the various truffles of North America - at least those common to the West Coast. Unfortunately, formatting issues take precedence here. There is a Table of Contents, but it is located in the back of the book, is not interactive, and recipe titles all run together in a mish-mash. Odd markups in small type break up the flow of the text at various points. I'm not sure whether those are meant to be footnotes or what, but they are distracting as they often appear in the middle of a sentence. Several photos are split so that part appears on one page and part on another. I would love to see a reformatted version soon.
Meanwhile, if you're a mushroom lover, a mushroom collector or a foodie, you'll love this book despite its faults. I wonder if we have truffles in Vermont?
While some of the recipes look interesting, and I enjoyed learning about truffle-hunting in the U.S., the formatting is so horrible that I was astounded to see that the long, boring introduction singled out NATS members by name to be commended for their formatting efforts! Some recipes don't even provide an ingredient list, so the cook has to pick out what will be needed by reading the directions. Some recipes clearly have missing directions, with partial sentences left hanging. Only recommended for utterly devoted mushroom/truffle fans if they can pick it up free, but what I'd really like to see would be for the NATS to fix the formatting and update the book!
