With it becoming colder and wetter, we are starting to see the emergence of mushrooms. Just down the end of my road, up in the hills between Deans Marsh and Lorne, there is a pine plantation where we have been sneaking into on a morning mushroom forrage.
We are by no means experts, and realising the dangers involved of ingesting the wrong kinds of mushrooms, these a purely investigative forrages, with no ‘shrooms being prepared for new dishes in the restaurant (yet!)
We are hunting down some materials on local mushroom foraging..perhaps someone has or knows where to get hold of a good text or guide to Australian fungi? If you do, drop us a line! BL
