Wild Mushroom Hunting in Massachusetts and Rhode Island
March 3, 2014 from 6:30 to 8:00 P.M.
More and more people are discovering that mushroom hunting is not only easy to learn about, but unbelievably fun.  It is also safe, if done properly.  Right here in Southern New England, varieties that are safe for beginners can be found in abundance if you know where and when to look.  Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt will give a presentation about 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, all in one.  It now includes 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 in the Southern New England area.
This program is sponsored by a grant from UniBank as part of the library’s Health and Wellness Series.

        There are 40 spaces available.
