One of the foremost mushroom chefs in the USA, Jack Czarnecki, 54, owns Joel Palmer House, a Dayton restaurant in the heart of Oregon's wine country that's devoted to mushroom cuisine. He gathers most of his mushrooms himself.
"What I discovered ... is the holy trinity of mushroom cookery. When you season the mushrooms you season them with soy sauce, salt and a pinch of sugar. Basically, that combination enhances their flavour the most," Czarnecki said.
Czarnecki has written three books on cooking with mushrooms. The second, "A Cook's Book of Mushrooms," received awards – so it would seem the man knows what he's talking about.
And Stalker having tried the holy trinity must concur that le Chef knows of what he speaks.
