FUNGUS AMONG US: Why anyone ever saw fit to pull a mushroom out of the ground--or mound--and put it into his mouth will forever be a mystery. Nonetheless, mushrooms of all tastes, textures and sizes grow the world over, and local author Rita Rosenberg has compiled their preparation into a new book, Mushrooms--Over 100 Tantalizing International Recipes. Rosenberg, along with samples of her Mushroom Caviar, can be found from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 8, at the Haunted Bookshop, 7211 N. Northern Ave.
