Kent State Art Professor Embraces Alter Ego As "Mushroom Hunter"

When Don King, a part-time faculty member in Kent State's School of Art, goes into the woods for a walk, his eyes are trained to see much more than the average hiker. 

"I was watching a TV show where a couple of chefs went out into the woods and brough back a huge basket of mushrooms and started cooking them, and that really got me hooked", King told David Moss of FOX8 News.

Dubbed "The Mushroom Hunter", King looks for edible mushrooms in area woods. He recently showed the best ways to cook crown tip corral mushrooms, which can grow on logs.
