Full description
You will use knives and baskets so as not to not damage the mushrooms. During your time in the Provence forests you will learn how to distinguish between edible and poisonous mushrooms.  You will hunt for about 10 different varieties, including: cepes, chanterelle, golden chanterelle, hedgehog mushroom, blue stalk mushroom, Tricholoma myomyces, Saffron milk cap, white saddle, elfin saddle, and black trumpet. You'll discover the quiet, unspoiled forests of the area and enjoy the bucolic and relaxed atmosphere of Provence. You will need to be equipped with sturdy, comfortable shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy.    The arrival at the hunting grounds will be followed by a brief tutorial on the different mushrooms we'll be searching for.  An outdoor breakfast, including bread, sausage, paté, tapenade, mushrooms and red wine (juice for the kids), will be served. The search for mushrooms will end with a last glass of wine to toast new friendships.

Top notch outing! Our guides gave us tips on what to look for and stuck with us the entire time to make sure we didn’t grab the wrong shrooms. Great lunch with a wine pairing in the forest.
