This week, Shea Hess explores the mushroom kingdom.  She talks with farmer Michelle Bulich about the different characteristics of crimini, oyster, and shiitake mushrooms, along with tips for buying and storing these tasty varieties.  Then she heads over to Williamsburg to chat with chef and co-owner Ivan Garcia at heralded Mexican eatery Mesa Coyoacan about his incredibly delicious (and vegan) mushroom and cactus tacos.  Finally she brings you back to the kitchen to whip up some mouth-watering oyster and crimini tacos that do some serious justice to these magical mushrooms.Each week Hungry in Brooklyn explores the world of local, sustainable and organic cooking one ingredient at a time. We talk to local experts about how to buy, prepare, and cook each delicious ingredient and then we walk you through a simple, do it yourself recipe!Channel:  http://www.hungryinbrooklyn.comTwitter:  http://www.hungry_in_bkFacebook:
