This review is from: Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 (Hardcover)
What a brilliant little handbook.
My wife and I take regular country walks and on the most recent I came across what I believed to be ceps. With this little book I was able to clearly identify the said mushroom and harvest same. We ate them for dinner, tossed in a little butter with crushed garlic on toast.
Yesterday we came home with a small basket from which we made the most delicious mushroom soup, following the recipe on page 204.
The River Cottage Handbook has given me the inspiration and knowledge to collect fungi.
Buy it, carry it in your coat pocket or glove compartment and harvest nature's riches.
