The Easy Edible Mushroom Guide

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Professor David Pegler's concise, well-illustrated and informative guide is a timely antidote to the mythology surrounding the much misunderstood - and often maligned - wild mushroom. The book begins with an introduction to fungi and mushroom biology, a mushroom calendar and a crash course in hunting for edible mushrooms, together with useful tables containing information on classifying and identifying edible fungi. Twenty different varieties are then explored in depth - from the edible to the poisonous (and even the hallucinogenic!). Extensive photographs and colour illustrations will aid the amateur mushroom gatherer in the tricky (and potentially dangerous) task of identification. Finally, this fascinating book offers recipes and food preparation tips. Pegler's considerable expertise and clear delivery make the Easy Edible Mushroom Guide an absolute must-have for anyone new to the world of mushroom hunting.
The laminated illustrated cover has some creases and evidence of having been read, but is sound. The binding is in good condition. The pages are clean and unmarked apart from a name on the title page and the remnants of a pencil annotation inside the back cover.
First published/ copyright 1999.
