the restaurant and bar in Je;erson. The
three owners are Angelo Kalavriziotis, Bill

Your article on foraging for edible
plants (February) creates serious
problems. Due to the poisonous properties of many mushrooms and the
di;culty of properly identifying them,
one should never indicate that there
are “foolproof” mushrooms. Mushrooms are not easy to identify, and
when we refer to edibility, we enter
the danger zone.
As a plant ecologist/mycologist
at Rutgers, I taught the subject and
served as a reference person for over
40 years, including for the state poison
control panel. I have witnessed the
horrors of misidentification of mushrooms and subsequent deaths; there
are few antidotes to mushroom poisoning. I also personally experienced
it: I made a mushroom identification
mistake and was partially paralyzed for
three days. A tough and painful lesson
in experiential learning!
A good reference for the subject
is Gary Linco;’s book, Toxic and
Hallucinogenic Mushroom Poisoning
(Van Nostrand Reinhold).

Wake Up to Korean Dining
In reference to our Jersey Choice
Restaurant Poll: I am shocked that I
see no separate category for Korean restaurants. There are Korean
restaurants in practically every town
now. Please take notice!”
