You are invited to come to the first wild edible mushroom hunt in May! The foraging season in cool climate pine forests around Sydney is still on, and the delicacies found there are highly prized by the best Australian chefs. .

The tour will take place in Hampton State Forest, which is just a short drive from Hampton beyond the Blue Mountains. During the tour, participants will learn how to identify and collect edible mushrooms, process them to cook a scrumptious lunch, and see how to preserve the bounty.

The guide will teach the participants how to safely recognise and pick them and will run a safety check of their baskets. The ticket price includes a fresh barbecue lunch made from the day's bounty, a mini-workshop on preserving mushrooms, and recipes for preserving mushrooms.

Participants will return home not only with what they found but also with the confidence to safely recognise two varieties of wild edible mushrooms and knowledge about how to preserve them. What is learned at the tour will allow participants to go to the pine forests to collect these mushrooms by themselves in years to come.
