Magnificent St. George’s Mushrooms traditionally fruit around the feast of St. George (23rd April) and they continue to appear for a month or so afterwards, sometimes up to mid-June.

St George's ButtonsWith a solid consistency and a robust flavour they are valued as a gourmet mushroom in many European markets and in France they are sold under the name of ‘mousseron’, a name that they share with the fairy ring champignon or ‘petit mousseron’, also much sought after. A perfect companion for delicious spring shoots and leaves such as hogweed shoots, wild garlic and Jack-by-the-hedge.

St Geprge's basketOn this fun day out you will learn to recognise the plants and mushrooms that we find from their key identification features and you will also be taught to recognise the habitats where you can expect to find them in the future. We will be cooking a delicious meal with our freshly foraged wild ingredients and we will dine together in the open air with a glass or two of organic champagne. Fantastic!

These days are VERY popular and early booking is recommended.
