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 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, this book is a must for foragers.
Put it in your rucksack, and let it guide you on safe, fun fungal adventures. - Fergus Drennan aka Fergus The Forager
