Elusive and coveted, morels are the World Series rings of the mushroom world. On a good day, a trek into the woods to search for the finicky fungus can result in burlap sacks filled with gourmet gold. But as an amateur, I’ve often headed home with nothing but an empty sack, multiple mosquito bites on my legs and a fear of ticks in my pants.
The Fungal Fusion food truck takes the work — and the insects and arachnids — out of enjoying these earthy, nutty morsels. Since February, Matt Trammell has driven around Kansas City with his mushroom-centric menu, which includes morel-loaded ’shrooms and fries.
