-- Paying tribute to the famous fungi with over 14,000 different varieties. Some mushrooms are highly poisonous if eaten, but there are a number of other mushrooms that can be eaten safely. Edible mushrooms can be stuffed, breaded, grilled or sauteed and can be eaten with a wide range of foods including salad, eggs, spaghetti, and pizza. Celebrate by eating an entire day of mushroom meals - from breakfast to dinner!

Stunning photographs and Lincoff's fascinating anecdotes from the field will make you an instant mycophile. Gathering edible wild food is a wonderful way to forge a connection to the Earth. Mushrooms are the ultimate local food source; they grow literally everywhere, from mountains and woodlands to urban and suburban parks to your own backyard.
