MILLBURY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Millbury resident is taking her passion for cooking with mushrooms to her YouTube page, sharing tips on how to forage for the ingredients needed out in nature.
Rachel Goclawski launched her "Cooking with Mrs. G" channel to showcase foraging techniques and teach a bit about cooking fungi, a practice that runs in her family.
"My grandmother raised me foraging, her father was one of the founders of the Boston Mycological Club, the oldest mushrooming club in the United States," Goclawski said.
WBZ's Kim Tunnicliffe tagged along with Goclawski and her daughter for a foraging trip in Douglas, where they uncovered beautiful red and yellow Bolete mushrooms.
Her teachings aren't just on digital avenues either, Goclawski leads mushrooming hikes into the woods to find and identify fungi.
"We'll go out into the field and gather some of these— and we'll cook them up just to see how they taste. Sautéing them, they're so tasty you don't really need to have anything else going on but the mushroom," Goclawski said.
Cooking with Mrs. G has around a thousand and a half subscribers at the time of posting, a value that saw a spike during the pandemic.
