Wild mushrooms have a reputation for being elusive treasures of the forest floor, with an element of the forbidden (and even dangerous). Most of us grew up with our parents and health officials telling us to never eat mushrooms we found growing in the forest unless an expert told us they were ok.
And yet, there’s no denying they’re delicious. Let’s face it, we want wild mushrooms. Finding them can be really hard though because, like all wild food, they live how, where, and when they want. There’s almost always a variety of fresh wild mushrooms in season though, and by buying online you can ensure that you’re always getting the best quality, safely and sustainably foraged by mycological experts, whether it’s fall varieties like lobster mushrooms and golden chanterelles or summer favorites like fresh wild morel mushrooms.
