Recipe: Tim Wiechmann's Corn Fettuccine with Mushrooms, Lemon Verbena, and Bûcheron

Tim Wiechmann's Corn Fettuccine with Black Trumpet and Purple Wine Cap Mushrooms, Lemon Verbena, and Bûcheron

When Tim Wiechmann prepared this sweet and meaty pasta dish at the Beard House, he used black trumpet and purple wine cap mushrooms that he plucked from the Cambridge-area wilds himself. Since most of us lack the necessary know-how to scan the forest floor for edible fungi, we suggest that you just forage for whatever you please at the grocery store. (High-end stores like Whole Foods usually have black trumpets, chanterelles, and other fine species in stock.)

On the Menu: October 24 through October 30

A view of the Beard house from the back patio. Here’s what’s happening at the Beard House and around the country next week: Sunday, October 24, 12:00 P.M. Tutto Toscana Brunch The classic Italian brunch may be the simple duo of cappuccino and cornetto, but we knew the country’s culinary crema would do wonders with the American breakfast when given the chance. In their farewell to the Apicius culinary school’s Tutto Toscana series, the faculty will prepare a delicious brunch that draws on Tuscany’s culinary traditions. Monday, October 25, 7:00 P.M. East Coast Meets Spain Named after the Spanish word for “foam,” Espuma also evokes the Delaware restaurant’s coastal locale, which offers endless inspiration for Jay Caputo’s New American cuisine.

In the meantime, take a look at the menu served to members of the media at yesterday's Beard House lunch. Every course was lifted straight from the book's pages.
