"This workshop will be useful for rank beginners as well as for people with some knowledge of mushrooms. We will start the day with an hour or so of introduction to the subject – how to get started, what you need to be concerned about in doing identifications, and a question and answer period. After that, we will go into the field to gather mushrooms, following the advice provided in the introduction. When we return from gathering mushrooms we’ll get into the identification part of the workshop using the field guide Mushrooms Demystified by David Arora. The process of identifying mushrooms will be described with the variety of mushrooms that were gathered in the field. The class may close with taste testing of the edibles we find to give participants an idea of how to start cooking with them. With some extra planning, perhaps we can have some bread, cheese and wine to round out the tasting."
