Like many people I think the idea of picking food growing naturally from my local surroundings is a great idea. I do worry though. What if I pick the wrong thing and poison my family?

This is a good book to give you an overview of everything from picking, to drying, to cooking your mushrooms.

It would be best used along with a more detailed mushroom guidebook (I recommend Mushrooms Demystified: A Comprehensive Guide to the Fleshy Fungi).
