This is the most comprehensive guide to foraging for wild mushrooms in UK and Northern Europe for both beginners and experienced foragers. With a special pictorial index, it describes the best tasting fungi, where to find them and when they are at their best; how to distinguish between the edible species and the poisonous lookalikes and when to leave an edible mushroom alone so the species can survive.
A fascinating, wise companion on the journey into the extraordinary and delicious world of fungi. Come Autumn, it will accompany every foray I make into the woods, and my life, and my frying pan, will be vastly richer because of it. –Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement.
Bursting with quality photos and great information, achieving the “balance between caution and adventure that a forager needs”, this book is an absolute must for foragers. Put the book in your rucksack, head outside, and let it guide you on safe, fun, mind-, heart-, and stomach-expanding fungal adventures. –Fergus Drennan aka Fergus The Forager
Written by a master of mycology who deeply loves fungus, its habitats and its quirks. –Tim Maddams, Chef, TV presenter, Cookery writer
