We are delighted to announce that the new book ‘Field Guide to Edible Mushroom of Britain and Europe’ is now available.
It covers many more species than the previous book as well as featuring the poisonous varieties and the look-a-likes you must be able to identify.
The book features over 65 of the very best edible mushroom species and 30 poisonous and potentially confusing species for extra safety.
Clear at-a-glance summary information on edibility, habitat, season and key identification features.
The book is fully illustrated with over 200 superb species photographs, many of them are new pictures by Peter Henley. We spent a busy 2005 working on it, and admit that we’re very pleased with the result. All of the pictures are of typical specimens shot in situ using natural light and highlighting unique characteristics and details of the habitat.
Useful and practical advice on the storage and cooking of each species to help you make the best use of your finds.
Signed copies can be ordered on this website. We look forward to hearing from you.
A LIMITED NUMBER OF BOOKS STILL AVAILABLE – ORDER NOW FOR CHRISTMAS.
