identify, enjoy pre-made tasters, feast
Mentored by Fergus DrennanMentor summary: Fergus the Forager
For ages: 18+ years
Suitable for those with both beginner or intermediate level fungi knowledge. Also includes more advanced cooking/preservation methods. Beginning at 10 am and concluding around 4 pm, we will be foraging in different fungal habitats, for example, woodlands of various kinds as well as grassland (exact locations will depend on the quality/quantity of available fungi I spot when doing a recce the day before). Drawing on my 30-year experience of identifying and gathering fungi, the aim is to provide a general introduction to seasonally available fungi, how to harvest them sustainably and how to utilize them as food and medicine, as well as how to recognise and avoid poisonous species. I will also introduce, with hands-on examples in some cases, how to use fungi for other purposes such as painting, dyeing, ink making, paper making. You will taste a number of different mushroom prouducts during the day, for example, canied fungi, pickled fungi, lacto-fermented fungi, liquid mushroom seasoning...
