A practical guide to discovering delicious food for free all around you! Jane Eastoe, author of the bestselling Wild Food and Henkeeping, shows you how to identify, pick and cook mushrooms. Learn how to identify funghi such as ceps (or porcini), horse mushrooms and giant puffballs, where you can find them, and what time of year will be most fruitful for foraging, as well as how best to store your mushrooms at home. Wild mushrooms grow in abundance, and discovering how to differentiate between a trompette des morts (trumpets of death) and a chicken of the woods is an exciting and money-saving past time. This handy pocket-sized book has over 40 detailed colour illustrations so you can learn which funghi are safe to eat and which mushrooms to avoid when out picking. With several delicious recipes for freshly-picked and dried mushrooms, such as a creamy risotto or porcini pizza, this is the perfect read for any budding mycophile!
