On Sunday, celebrity chef and owner Kelly Liken will host special guest, cookbook author, food writer and president of the New York Mycological Society, Eugenia Bone at Restaurant Kelly Liken for an all-fungi feast during Liken’s summer harvest Sunday supper. Guests will have a chance to meet the author for a book signing of her recent release “Mycophilia: Revelations from the Weird World of Mushrooms.” Following the signing, Liken will showcase a three-course wild mushroom menu as Bone speaks to the mysteries of mycology, including the flavors, culture and science of wild mushrooms such as those grown throughout the Rocky Mountain region. Inspired by the weekly Sunday Vail Farmer’s Market, the largest market in the state of Colorado, Liken sources the market for ingredients for her three-course “Harvest Sunday Supper” menu. Diners can follow Kelly on Twitter for a preview of the ingredients and products that diners may find featured on the Sunday supper menu. Bone has been a food writer for over 20 years, her stories have appeared in newspapers and magazines across the country, including The New York Times Magazine to The National Lampoon, Saveur, Food & Wine, Gourmet, Fine Cooking, Wine Enthusiast, and Martha Stewart Living, among many others. She lectures and occasionally teaches, and demonstrates preserving and mushroom cooking, in venues like the Museum of Natural History, the Denver Botanical Gardens, and the New York Botanical Gardens.
