“Our UK based fungus forays are a great way to get out in the fresh air and learn a bit more about the fascinating kingdom of mushrooms. Taking place in the beautiful Peak District within a radius of maximum 20 – 30 miles from our base in New Mills each walk will last approximately four hours, including a lunch al fresco where we’ll make a dish with some of the mushrooms we’ve picked and enjoy it with locally produced sausages and sourdough bread, hot and cold drinks plus home made cake to follow.
During the walk we’ll talk about the mushrooms we find along the way, interspersed with advice on what family characteristics to look for to enable you to start picking with confidence if you are a beginner. The emphasis is on having fun and learning some useful tips on how to recognise the many tasty edible funghi that can be found if you know what to look out for! By the end of the walk you should have a good grounding in at least one of the families of beginners mushrooms, like boletus, and a basic knowledge of how to spot the nasties. “
