Slow Mushrooming Seminar

Roaming the autumn forests to discover the delights of wild edible fungi is an increasingly popular Australian pastime. Humans have foraged for wild foods since time began, before cultivation and agriculture became the way of life for most people. Fungi provide subsistence food and cherished delicacies, psychotropics and pharmaceuticals. In developing countries they alleviate hunger and poverty. In the developed world including Australia, they are mostly consumed as a gourmet speciality.However, those who fancy collecting a few mushrooms for dinner, take heed. Among the delicious and delightful lurk deadly species that could land you in the grave. Unfortunately the various folkloric sayings about edible fungi always don’t hold true.This illustrated seminar explores the rise and pleasures of myco-cuisine, along with the rich histories of myth and magic that entice us to pluck that seemingly delectable mushroom and pop it in the pan.

Signed copies of Alison’s books, The Allure of Fungi and Wild Mushrooming will be available for purchase.
