Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 by John Wright.
I was lucky enough to receive a signed copy of this book for Christmas from my considerate sister. If the bonus comes through on Tuesday, I hope to enrol for John Wright’s course which is to take place later in 2011.
With money becoming tighter, and learning more about the benefits of eating locally and seasonally, it would be foolish to ignore what is on our doorstep, and the property on which I live is not without its resources when it comes to fungi; I should like to be more efficient in using them and not deprive the whole area of a species by picking incorrectly or indiscriminately.
For inspiration in learning more about edible fungi, sensibly and beneficially, I have to thank a Tumblr blogger, Graveyard Dirt, a wild-crafter if ever there was one.
