False morel mushrooms are poisonous and potentially lethal if not prepared properly. Still, people in Finland love to eat them. Why? It comes down to taste, of course. And these nutty mushrooms are insanely delicious. We go foraging in the forest for false morels with chef Kim Mikkola. Then he prepares them for us back at his Michelin-starred restaurant in Helsinki. The process is painstaking. But it must be followed so people can safely enjoy this traditional delicacy.
