Cep - Identification, distribution, edibility, ecology, sustainable harvestingThe cep is the king of edible mushrooms. No food, fungal or otherwise, comes near it for flavour and texture and when you find a firm young penny bun, or 'bouchon' cep as the French call it after champagne corks, there is an irresistable fairytale beauty to them which is both beautiful and seductive.
Chanterelle - Identification, Distribution, Edibility, Ecology, Sustainable HarvestingIt can feel like finding the mythical pot of gold at the end of a rainbow when you come across a cluster of these beautiful mushrooms on a shady woodland floor. They are the most widely commercially harvested wild fungi in Scotland, loving our damp, mild climate and extensive birch and beech woodlands and are highly esteemed by chefs.
An Introduction to Fungi ForagingThis article presents a structure around which novice and intermediate fungi foragers may advance their understanding of fungi lifecycle, learn to recognise important mushroom families, develop mindful foraging techniques, and feel safe in the process.
