Did you know that Northern California is recognized as one of the best edible wild mushroom regions in the entire world? We have more choice edible mushrooms in this area than any other region. Join us for a fantastic day learning more about the wonderful world of wild mushrooms.

The day starts with chef, preservist & forager Elissa Rubin-Mahon leading a foray in the hills above Healdsburg. Participants will learn the fundamentals of edible wild mushroom foraging, focusing on the most easily-recognizable edible mushrooms of our region: chantrelles, black trumpets, porcinis and other boletes, lion's mane, and more. You will learn about ecosystems, terrain and other clues to look for to increase the likelihood of finding edibles. We'll gather all of our found mushrooms, edible or not, to use as examples of identifying characteristics.

After working up an appetite from our tromp in the beautiful woods, we'll gather for a cooking demonstration lead by chef Elissa focused on....mushrooms! Chef Elissa will share professional tips and recipes for storing, handling, rehydrating and cooking with a variety of fresh and dry wild mushrooms.
