As good as gold.

Freshly foraged wild mushrooms? Count us in. Chanterelles can be a rare find; luckily, the folks at Mikuni have done all the gathering for us. With their earthy, peppery, apricot-like flavor, these golden buttons will pair right up with whatever happens to be on the menu—steak, fish, chicken...the works. Mikuni’s advice: Sauté ‘em with some fresh herbs, swirl in a bit of white wine and cream, and pour it all over fresh pasta (then prepare for all the oohs and ahhs).
