Intro to Foraging for Gourmet Mushrooms in the Mountains
Western Colorado is home to many species of edible gourmet mushrooms including morels, oysters, porcini and chanterelle. Learn when, where and how to forage for these delicious beauties. Topics include identification, habitat, etiquette, preservation and cooking. Trent is the co-founder of Modern Forager and author of Burn Morels – A Modern Foragers Guide to Finding Mushrooms. He is a CDPHE certified Wild Mushroom Identification Expert. Based in Glenwood Springs, he hunts across the Western Slope with his wife Kristen and two dogs, Benzie and Lulu.
While Trent won’t share his secret spots, he will teach Coloradans how to safely locate and pick their own gourmet mushrooms and hopefully develop their own secret spots
