Come and join CMS for a day in the woods and learn how to identify and gather winter mushrooms, followed by cooking up a variety of tasting dishes using some of our fungal finds from the day.
Pavel Gubanikhin and Matthew Johnson will teach you about fungi families in winter, where they grow and why and how to harvest wild mushrooms in a safe and sustainable manner during a few hours wandering through mixed woodland.
After the baskets are full, Heather Sielicki will fire up the camp stove and give a cooking demo and tasting of fresh winter chanterelles and hedgehogs using a variety of preparation methods.
- Tortellini in a Winter Chanterelle Champagne Cream Sauce
- Biscuits in Hedgehog Gravy (with or without Sage Turkey Sausage)
- Potato, Egg, and Wild Mushroom Frittata
- Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Winter Chanterelles
The group will meet at 10:00am on Sunday, January 25 in South Eugene and then carpool to a foray location roughly 60 to 90 minutes East. Participation in this foray is limited to the first 20 registrations. Kids are welcome but no dogs are allowed.
Foray FULL…registration is now closed.
On Saturday November 22, Pavel Gubanikhin and Matthew Johnson will be co-leading a CMS foray. This foray will be heading Westward, with the exact location to be determined. The emphasis of this trip will be on collecting edible species for Thanksgiving. In the spirit of the holiday season, we will encourage sharing of what we find, so that everyone can go home with something edible.
What better way to impress your family than showing up to the Thanksgiving table with a basket of Chanterelles?
Please remember to bring your mushroom picking permits and trail parking permit, if you have one. Expect to carpool, and please be prepared to split the cost of gasoline with whomever drives (bring cash). We will be meeting at 10:00 am in Eugene, the precise location will be sent to those registered for the foray.
Participation in this foray is limited to CMS members, and registration will be limited to 15 people. Registration is now closed.
Join the Cascade Mycological Society for an overnight foray at HJ Andrews Experimental Forest, Blue River, OR from Friday, November 7 to Sunday, November 9, 2014.
The Andrews Forest is a place of inquiry. First established in 1948 as an US Forest Service Experimental Forest, the H.J. Andrews is a 16,000-acre ecological research site in Oregon’s beautiful western Cascades Mountains. The landscape is home to iconic Pacific Northwest old-growth forests of Cedar and Hemlock, and moss-draped ancient Douglas Firs; steep terrain; and fast, cold-running streams.
This two day adventure is a great way to learn about local fungi. We will go out for a short foray Friday afternoon (optional) and two forays on Saturday led by Cheshire Mayrsohn and Marcia Peeters. On Friday night, Skye Weintraub will present a talk titled “Poisonous or Edible, an Exploration of Look Alikes.” Saturday night, we will have a potluck and cook up some of our finds. We will also talk more about what we found. Cheshire Mayrsohn will lead a dye workshop Sunday morning using mushrooms we find during the week. Wool yarn samples to dye will be provided. If you want to dye silk scarves, they will be for sale at $5 each.
