Searching Chow (not Chowhound)

I have a current interest in mushrooms.

It seemed that Chow did a series a while back about mushrooms.

When I search Chow there only seem to be two options "recipes" or "all Chow". Trying to search on "mushrooms" gives me 34 pages because of all the recipes with that word.

I don't remember which mushrooms were discussed, so I can't narrow it down that way. Also I want to see everything Chow wrote about mushrooms, not have to search mushroom by mushroom.

Any way to focus the search on stories?

After 5 pages I found some videos. So that is my second question. Was the mushroom information only in videos?

Here's a request. I asked this a while back before there was better voice recognition software. Is it possible, given better voice recognition, to include the script with the videos? There are lots of video topics I'm interested in, but just don't have the time to watch them. It would be nice if there were words I could skim quickly.I'm not saying I don't like the videos. I just find text more convenient in some cases.

        Thank you. That was very kind. Even in Google that could not have been easy. It is a shame that good articles like this can not be easily retrieved through Chow search. If there was an option to search only stories or videos (and ingredients) it would be easier.

          You're welcome. I know it's not the answer you're looking for. I was just suggesting using Google until there's a way to search Chow. I tried to insert the link but the resulting page didn't load when I tested it.
