Want another fabulous thing to do in autumn? Forage for wild mushrooms!

We in Canberra are so lucky to be surrounded by forests filled most autumns with an abundance of mushrooms, many of them edible. Want to know where to go and what to pick?

Foodish has teamed up with FungiCo to lead you on two different types of mushroom foraging adventures. The first is all about collecting edible mushrooms in pine forests. In these forays you learn about mushrooms and how to identify edible mushrooms, develop foraging techniques, and gather an abundance of delicious edible mushrooms (weather permitting) to take home.

The second is about mushroom diversity in native Australian forests. Wander the forest with FungiCo and learn about mushroom species, mushroom habitats, and advanced forms of mushroom identification. If you have already done an edible forage, this foray will extend your knowledge of the world of mushrooms considerably.     

Both forages conclude with a campfire and mushroomy lunch. You'll be given directions on where our rendez-vous point is before the forage. Wear warm clothes and sturdy boots and bring a small, sharp knife. For the edible mushroom forages, bring a large carry bag or wicker basket to collect your mushrooms in.

Edible mushroom forage: 

  • Rendez-vous 10.30 am
  • Forage 11-12.30 pm
  • Lunch (with wine and warm drinks) 12.30-1.30 pm.
  • Sunday 19 April & 3 May. Cost $80

Advanced forage in native forests:

  • Rendez-vous 10.30 am
  • Forage 11am-1pm
  • Lunch with wine and warm drinks 1-2pm

Sunday 26 April. Cost $90

Holly Davis returns to Foodish in 2020 to teach you the craft of sourdough-bread making.

Holly's knowledge is immense. She is one of the early pioneers of the wholefood movement in Australia and has been a life-long fermenter. She is vitally concerned with the health benefits of eating nutritious and probiotic-rich foods.

During the afternoon you make your own dough using the special starter that Holly has nurtured for decades. You take this dough home along with some of Holly's starter and an information booklet to guide you on your sourdough adventures. You also get to taste the sourdough creations that Holly will make during the workshop.
