This guide to the world of fungi combines the accuracy of a fieldguide with mushroom recipes and first-hand foraging information. It provides a photographic recognition guide to a variety of both rare and common fungi species. An amazing diversity of colours, shapes and textures is revealed in close-ups of common and bizarre species - from familiar pink-gilled field mushrooms and spongy giant puffballs, to slimy stinkhorns and bracket fungi. Advice is given on where, when and how to pick and prepare edible fungi and 20 new and traditional dishers are offered to transform your own finds into memorable meals.
