Dear SOS: Had dinner a few nights ago at the Joel Palmer House in Dayton, Ore. Most everything was mushrooms, but I have to say the wild mushroom soup was probably the best I’ve ever tasted.
Dear Charles: Chef and owner Christopher Czarnecki was happy to share the recipe for wild mushroom soup, rich with flavor yet simple to make. It’s not surprising that the soup is so good. His father and restaurant founder Jack Czarnecki is a legendary mushroom hunter and cook.
