about this item

Safe Gourmet Mushroom Foraging is the perfect way to learn how to safely and ethically forage for and sustainably harvest wild gourmet mushrooms. Readers learn the profiles of gourmet mushrooms, from descriptive identifying features, where and when to look, picking, prep and storage tips, as well as look-alikes and safety considerations. This book goes beyond a standard mushroom guide by focusing on distinctive species that are safe to eat and easy to recognize, and captivates foodies by including culinary values and recipes.

Recreational pickers can delight in the Earth’s cornucopia from two expert mushroom foragers who go beyond standard mushrooms by teaching readers to find and feast upon epicurean fungi, all while being cautious of the dangers of mushroom foraging. Ari Rockland-Miller and Jenna Antonino DiMare profile mushrooms like porcini, chanterelles, black trumpets and morels by season through their ForageCast system, which shows readers the best times and locations to harvest mycorrhizal species. A key feature in the book is how to carefully harvest mushrooms’ spore-bearing fruit to avoid overharvesting and maintain ecological balance and the health of the forest ecosystem.

This book has 30-40 recipes.
