Mushroom Hunting in Rhode Island
Come to the Lincoln Public Library to learn about the fascinating world of mushrooms at 6:00 PM on Monday, December 8. More and more people are discovering that mushroom hunting is not only easy, but unbelievably fun. It is also safe, if done properly. Right here in the Ocean State, varieties that are safe for beginners can be found in abundance if you know where--and when--to look. Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt of Southern New England Mushroom Hunting will give a presentation about this interesting hobby. They will present some amazing local varieties, focusing on those that are safe for beginners, and discuss their health and nutritional values as well. They will be showcasing the new, expanded Gourmet Mushrooms of Rhode Island, which is simultaneously a large, beautiful 2015 calendar and a 44-page book with recipes and over 140 color photos.
Ryan Bouchard is the author of Gourmet Mushrooms of RI, the first book about mushroom hunting in the Ocean State. Emily Schmidt studies the health and nutritional values of our local mushrooms, as well as the many incredible ways they can be cooked. They educate people about safely hunting for wild mushrooms through their company, Southern New England Mushroom Hunting.
