    'The Handbook' for all mushroom pickers!

    Dwight,

    Thank you so much for allowing me to read your book.

    I really enjoyed it, I keep wanting to call it ‘The Handbook’ for all mushroom pickers. If my pickers won’t buy this book, I will buy it for them.

    You share the basic rules in a way that is easy to understand, and to the point. As a Mushroom company and buyer of wild mushrooms, it makes this book a great tool that I can use in my own business as well.

    Job well done

    Best of luck to you.

    A comprehensive guide to foraging your own wild mushrooms

    This book is an easy read and a comprehensive guide to foraging your own wild mushrooms. I particularly like the way the author gives us a peek at how he started, to where he is today. As a chef, I particularly appreciate that the reader is enticed to try the fruits of there foraging with easy recipes. If you enjoy mushrooms, this is the guide for you.

    A great blend of humour and really useful information

    I found this handbook a great blend of humour and really useful information for the novice, as well as the informed mushroom hunters out there. I have known Dwight since his days in the wild mushroom industry in British Columbia and the information he is giving is based on years of experience and is invaluable.Anyone who has a love of the outdoors and wants to experience the joy and tranquility of foraging for mushrooms in nature, and the same day cooking one of the fabulous recipes in Dwight’s book, must pick up a copy of this for their backpack.

    Once I started, I couldn't put it down!

    Once I started reading “foraging and cooking for wild mushrooms” I couldn’t put it down. On top of that, I’ll have to put aside my passion for trout fishing and start stalking the surrounding forests for the delicious mushrooms Dwight has introduced me to.

    Wild Mushrooms!

    I was introduced to mushrooms later in life, as my family (especially my grandmother) believed that you could die from eating them. My gastronomical education began with mushrooms on pizza (age 15). Of course, I never mentioned anything to my grandparents as they would have reached for a laxative immediately to save my life.

    I’m delighted to offer my review of Foraging For And Cooking With Wild Mushrooms. This is a field guide that will appeal to the sophisticated as well as the neophyte mushroom lover. It contains practical knowledge on where to find the varieties of mushrooms, how to harvest and transport them, and in my favourite section, how to cook them. As I read the book, I found the recipes tantalizing – I can’t wait to try them out.

    This simple to understand field guide will remove your fears, and open your eyes to a hidden bounty of nature that is ready to be harvested on your next hike through the woods. It’s also a great way to open the gastronomical doors to the kids or grandchildren.

    Dwight Thornton loves mushrooms and imparts his knowledge and passion in a gentle humorous way. Once you’ve read the book, you will feel that he has become a friend. I’m looking forward to another book on fiddleheads possibly… I was 26 before I tried them, granny didn’t like those either.
