Gathering Wild Mushrooms
Lifelong Learning

Delicate yet hearty and palette-pleasing, mushrooms add texture and flavor to a variety of cuisines and dishes. But, which of the thousands of species of mushrooms is edible and which will kill you? In this class, you'll begin to understand this important distinction by discussing the basics of mushroom hunting, which mushrooms in Utah and surrounding states are edible, and of course, cooking with mushrooms. Our field trip will take us to the Uinta mountains, where we will visit some common sites for hunting (and gathering if there's been enough rain!) boletus edulis (porcini) and chanterelle.
