Why read it?

1 author picked The Complete Mushroom Hunter, Revised as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Written by my mentor the late, great Gary Lincoff. This book teaches how to safely identify and prepare wild edible mushrooms, but it does much more. Gary includes fascinating stories about how different cultures relate to mushrooms (from mycophobic to can’t wait to get out there and hunt for them). I’ve tried many of the recipes, and they are excellent. He also includes medicinal mushrooms, and (important!) a guide to the poisonous mushrooms you definitely want to avoid.
