We couldn’t imagine a better way to spend the afternoon than scouring the mountainside and rooting around the underbrush with expert mushroom forager Patrick Hamilton as he uncovers the secrets of how to find, identify, and cook morels, porcini, and other tasty forageable treats.

Come tromp through the deep woods and discover hidden treasure with our resident mushroom expert and chef Patrick Hamilton. This guy knows his stuff! With over 40 years of mushroom hunting under his belt, if there are mushrooms out there he'll help you find them, make sure you're picking the right ones, and tell you the best recipe for cooking them up.
These classes are great for either the beginning forager or the veteran hunter. Patrick has such deep knowledge of the woods that whatever level you're at you'll learn something new.
