At Burlington's Juniper restaurant and Bleu Northeast Seafood, chef Doug Paine composes elegant plates using local meats and vegetables — and, usually, fruits of the forest delivered by local foragers. On Saturday, July 14, he'll lead a group of home cooks into the woods in search of midsummer mushrooms. With found fungi in hand, the wanderers will return to Richmond Community Kitchen's cooking classroom, don aprons and try their hand at making an elegant mushroom tartine.
