Untamed Mushrooms: A Wild Walk in the Woods
The onset of the fall season means that the boreal forest is popping with mushrooms! But which varieties should you eat and which varieties are best left alone? Join a certified mushroom identification expert, a veteran cook, and a nature and food photographer, authors of the new guide Untamed Mushrooms: From Field to Table for an interpretive wild mushroom foray into the woods. Learn what to look for when stalking untamed ‘shrooms, how to sustainably harvest them, and how to successfully handle and transport them to your kitchen. Students should be prepared to hike over uneven ground at distances greater than a mile.
