Spring King: Porcini Foraging (May 25th) with Rachel Zoller
Boletus edulis, King Boletes, Lil Piggies, Stone Mushrooms: yes, we’re talking about the infamous Porcini! A culinary favorite in kitchens around the world, this mushroom is one our our favorites for late spring foraging. Join Rachel Zoller for a day of porcini hunting, high up in the forests surrounding Mt. Adams. As in all of Rachel’s classes, you’ll spend time learning the basics mushroom ID, wild food safety, as well as exploring forest ecology as it relates to mushroom habitat. Join us for a mountain mushroom hunt: it could be the last wild, edible mushroom you see until September!
