Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of Québec’s forest mushrooms in this theoretical and practical workshop. Specifically, you’ll learn the main precautionary principles and examine different types of mushrooms before exploring edible species of gastronomic interest in detail.
Next, you’ll head out to the forest with Janie Poitras. After an hour and a half of foraging, you’ll sort through your harvest according to the theory learned in the morning and identify the mushroom species you’ve found.
