Join us on a wild mushroom hunt with resident expert and chef Patrick Hamilton. This guy knows his stuff! With over 40 years of mushroom hunting experience, he'll help you find them, make sure you're picking the right ones, and tell you the best methods for cooking mushrooms that you discover. These are great classes for both the beginner and veteran forager.

Meet in Inverness for a short class on learning the Pt Reyes mushroom habitat and hearing which fungi might be found that are good enough to eat safely. And also learn about a few deadly poisonous ones out there in that beautiful place!  After the short class, there will be an opportunity for everyone to go out and hunt for mushrooms!

Join us on a Wild Mushroom Hunt with resident expert and former Chef, Patrick Hamilton. This guy knows his stuff! With over 40 years of mushroom hunting experience, he'll help you find mushrooms, make sure you're taking the right ones home, and--if you like--tell you the best methods for cooking those mushrooms. These are great classes for both the beginner and veteran forager and have been very well-attended for several years.

Get a better insight about the wild foods around you when you take part in this foraging class geared specifically toward mushrooms. You'll learn which ones are ideal for picking and for taking home for cooking, and a better understanding of those you should avoid. After at least two classes along the approximately 3 1/2 hour hike, Patrick helps ensure that you can safely identify a few mushrooms to pick safely.
