Mushrooms--those delicacies that bring unique flavor to so many dishes--take a lot of science and TLC to produce. In this episode, we go "behind the curtain" to learn how one couple took the plunge to create a mushroom "farm" and grow gourmet favorites. Then we visit the Boro Cafe and Restaurant in Swansboro, where Chef Edward Aiken includes mushrooms for interesting twists in his dishes.
