Thank you, might have to order a copy. It's always frustrating to think you might be looking at a field full of tasty treats, but then having to restrain yourself for fear of a violent death.


Death IS my main concern.

Just be careful out there; a guy I know who has been picking and eating 'shrooms for years let a dodgy one slip through onto his lunch plate the other week and it put him in hospital for 72 hours.

That said, when I were a wee slip of a lad I went picking with my mum regularly and there is nothing quite like the taste of a freshly harvested mushroom.



Thanks Andy. A word of warning countered by an encouraging childhood memory. Nicely balanced.

Apparently there's one essential book that you shouldn't do without, by Roger Phillips http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mushrooms-Roger-Phillips/dp/0330442376
