Chef Daniel Bruce, a formidable forager (he had collected 100 pounds of porcini the day I spoke to him about honey mushrooms), finds spinach an ideal partner for honeys—and now, so do I. This is one of those perfect pairings that pull together flavors and textures as they preserve the individual characteristics of the partners. Plump, glossy mushroom chunks are accented by soft spinach in a side dish for sautéed liver or kidneys, broiled steak, roasted lamb, or game—or a nut-studded vegetarian pilaf of brown rice or buckwheat.
