MOREL SOUP WITH SHERRY
"Morel soup is often served on Mother’s Day because that weekend is the peak time for harvesting the morel, sometimes called the jewel of the mushroom family. The wrinkled cap-shape mushrooms begin pushing up after the first thaw, then quickly disappear when a hint of warm weather brushes past. A morel’s taste is faintly reminiscent of its woody autumn cousin, but the nutty perfume is far more subtle. Morels need to be paired with other mild spring foods so their flavor is highlighted and not lost."
