Mycophobia , Not Me, I love them.


Mushrooms on toast (sort of), freshly picked wild mushrooms. Field mushrooms and a couple of Boletus. Boletus is a good mushroom to start foraging with as it is easy to identify. Penny Bun is the prize Boletus. Some of the Boletus group are not so brilliant.
The devils Boletus is the only one to steer clear of, that’s pretty rare in the U.K. It is very easy to spot.
Field mushrooms are reasonably easy to identify, but there are some similar looking mushrooms. Yellow Stainer being just one. If you’re not 100% don’t pick it. Use good photos and Spore colour checks for I.D. Go on an organised mushroom foraging trip, there are some good ones organised by the National Trust.
But what’s that underneath the mushrooms? Hmmm,supermarket crap. Back in Bavaria it would be a good sourdough. Don’t bother with Tesco’s their sourdough is rubbish. Soda Bread is a great option and easy to make.
The butter I used for frying is amazing, the olive oil nothing special. A whole garlic clove bruised/bashed, thyme, salt and pepper (at the end).
There are many field mushrooms about at the moment. I hope before the season is finished to get some different types. A trip further afield is needed.
