Sonoma County is one of the best edible wild mushroom regions in the entire world!

Join mushroom experts David Campbell and Julie Schreiber as they lead a foray through the forested hills above Healdsburg. Participants will learn the fundamentals of edible wild mushroom foraging, including what trees and terrain to look for, the most easily-recognizable edible mushrooms of our region, safety, foraging etiquette, and more. 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 back at the Relish Culinary Center for a cooking demonstration led by Julie, who is also a trained chef and winemaker, and lots of Q&A with both David and Julie. Julie's demo will focus on storing, handling and cooking with a wide variety of fresh and dry wild and exotic mushrooms--guests will have the opportunity to taste at least 6? different mushrooms. We'll cook up any edibles we find along with our amazing four-course mushroom lunch served with specially-selected wines, featuring a different winery on each date. Wild mushroom mix

  • Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup with Ricotta and Marinated Mushroom Crostini
  • Winter Green Salad with Side-by-Side-by-Side Wild Mushroom Tastes: at least three different seasonal mushrooms cooked and served side-by-side-by-side, such as Black Trumpets, Yellowfeet, Hedgehogs, Lion's Mane, etc.
  • "Osso Bucco" Shanks with Porcini Mushrooms & Gremolata
  • Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Maitake Mushrooms, Rosemary & Garlic
  • Candy Cap "Maple" Trifle with Creme Anglaise, Whipped Cream & Chocolate Ganache

This Relish class includes three glasses (9 ounces total) of wine per person served to all participants over 21 years of age. Additional wine is available for purchase by the glass or bottle.

Our mushroom experiences on finding, handling and cooking with choice edible mushrooms, including:

  • Exploration of local mushroom-friendly habitat with incredibly knowledgeable forager & chef
  • Opportunity to "get your mushroom eyes on" first hand to learn how to spot wild mushrooms
  • Overview of wild mushroom information, including identifying characteristics of commonly found local choice edible varieties
  • Favorite books and online resources to learn more about mushrooms
  • Cooking demonstration focused on how to get the most flavor out of wild and cultivated mushrooms'
    • After about 1.5 hours of hiking, you will be happy to sit, eat and drink and not worry about hands-on cooking
  • Delicious and hearty four-course wild mushroom lunch with local wine
  • Discussion about the important roles of and uses of mushrooms by people and in nature
  • A beautiful walk in the woods--sure to forever change the way you look at nature!

We focus on identifying edibles, using other mushrooms as fascinating examples of characteristics. Please know that we will NOT be focused on taxonomic identification of every mushroom we see.

Mushroom foraging is like fishing in that we never know what we'll find until we go. We do carefully select our foraging locations to increase our chances, but we cannot guarantee that we will always find edible mushrooms.

WE DO NOT CANCEL OR PROVIDE REFUNDS DUE TO RAIN. We will forage in the rain if it's not miserably torrential and the roads are still passable. If there is a chance of rain on the event date, we will ask for a cell phone number so we can call or text you early that morning about the foraging status. If the weather does not allow, WE WILL STILL HOLD THE LUNCH and you will be invited to forage with us on another class date.


A fantastic activity with relatives and friends visiting over the holidays!Mushroom expert David Campbell
