Mushrooms.


Can anybody recommend to me a book on identifying fungi with a view to maybe collecting some edible ones and possibly even developing a deeper interest them.

Thanks.

Not a book, but certainly a website that should help:

A very readable book with lots of recipes and brilliant id tips for many of the commoner fungi is Mushrooms by John Wright in the River Cottage Handbook Series. £12.99

Roger Phillips Mushrooms is also very good.£18.99

Thanks for the info guys. I’ll see where your suggestions lead.Trouble is I always feel the need to put a name to everything I find, so it could be a bit of a challenge.
