    DescriptionThe temperate regions of Europe (including Britain) and North America have the perfect climate for some of the most delicious wild mushrooms in the world. They grow in our woods, pastures and hedges by the bucketful, and many of the most common species are supremely edible. Interest in wild mushrooms is increasing, fuelled by the gastronomic revolution of the past 30 years. What could be more 'natural', 'local' or have fewer food miles than a home-gathered Chanterelle? The problem is that with so little indigenous fungal lore, most people have no idea where to start looking for edible mushrooms. This is where "Fungi Forays" comes into its own. Starting with key habitats such as woodlands and pastures, it shows would-be mushroom hunters the best places to find their quarry and how to pick out the key species, using a series of identification spreads. As additional bonuses, the book is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet, and includes a fold-out insert containing at-a-glance illustrations to help with quick identification in the field. Whether you are searching for Chanterelles, Porcini or even truffles, this book is an essential aid in the field for any fungal foray.
