We were trolling the Race, off Provincetown, listening to David explain how his passion for mushroom foraging in the San Francisco Bay Area, is a lot like fishing for Striped Bass. As in, you never know what you’re gonna find or catch. Well, he was being very, very kind. Because, in fact, we had been trolling over countless “mushrooms” and we only had two fish to show for our valiant efforts! Brother Ben, along with Ben’s son Theo, rounded out the morning foragers. Born and raised in Boston, Ben and David both moved to California, coming East every summer to be with their Dad as they convene each summer in Truro. Their quest this morning was to catch enough fish for Chef David to prepare a meal for Dads birthday tomorrow. And after a quick change of scenery, the fish started flying over the rails. With foraging complete and smiles and weary arms held high, the three from Cali knew they succeeded. Happy Birthday Mr. Karlin!
