Eureka! I found it! The yellow mushroom gold has been scarce in Santa Barbara these past few drought-affected years. I found this lonesome, solitary chanterelle two days ago. It wound up on a sauteed breast of chicken.
I will be on a break for a few days. We are going to Yountville to dine at The French Laundry. I will catch up on Inn Crowd posts after my return and tell you about dinner at the Laundry.
