Just in time to mentally catalog an autumn menu, local chefs Staffan Terje (Perbacco and Barbacco), Sean O'Toole (Quince and Cotogna). Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani (both of Ame and Terra), and Todd Humphries (Kitchen Door) join "mushroom huntress" Connie Green in the California High Sierra to create an earthy four-course meal centered around the morel (and more!).

Bewitching, actually. Watch the video above [spoiler alert: flagrant foie gras searing ahead], via NYT's T Mag, and then check out the menu here.

UPDATE: The mental giants at NYT refuse to embed their precious video, so go here instead to check it out.
