About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Wild Mushroom Foraging
For those of you whom expressed interest in wild mushrooms and mushroom picking tours, there is a great article in today's Epicure section of The Age newspaper.

With all this rain, there should be plenty out there, though you need to hurry before it gets too cold.

Yet another reason that I need to learn to drive - just had a look at the article and none of those locations look doable for the transport-less :(

My front yard was full of them at the weekend.

I've been picking wild mushrooms since I was a kid, but always during late summer/autumn (our seasons, not Australian:) This year we're hunting fresh morel mushrooms for the first time - very exciting, as it's the first time to look for spring mushrooms here..

What an amazing article.
Don’t you wonder how anybody came to figure out drinking the animals urine would render out psychotropic chemicals that would make them fearless? Who tried it first?
And how cool that Switzerland has mushroom police!
Three course mushroom feast! Oh my heart be still.
Now what kind of heaven is “a light salad of finely sliced mushrooms flavoured with herbs and pomegranate and a rainbow mushroom risotto with eight different fungi.”

Hi ellie, that's a shame, maybe if you called up to one of the tours and explained your predicament, someone might help.

Hi kitchen hand, lucky you, no need to drive anywhere. Any tour groups through the front yard?

Hi pille, I expect a full report on your morel hunting, just so I can drool, I really love them.

Hi tanna, I do know the Finns started eating fly agaric (Amanita muscaria) after watching reindeer eating them and going a bit silly, but you really do need to pretty keen, don't you. Blog police, mushroom police, where is it all going to end?
