Langdon Cook is a Washington state author known for his willingness to go anywhere, anytime in search for the ingredients for a great meal. In his new book “The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America,” he writes about the Northwest eccentrics and opportunists who scour the woods in search of rare mushrooms. It’s an underground economy where prize mushrooms can go for hundreds of dollars a pound.
