Once, the British were very fearful of wild fungi, but now with restaurants serving them and seemingly every TV chef proclaiming their virtues, many are tempted to explore such comestibles for themselves. But it’s important to listen to the experts – and as the author of four foraging books and a regular expert on Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage, you’ll be joining one of the world’s mushroom experts to discover their delights.

Some, such as the penny bun, parasol, hedgehog mushroom, chicken of the woods, horse mushroom, horn of plenty and many more are superb for eating. The problem, of course, is that there are about 7,000 species of larger fungi in Britain and many are poisonous, sometimes deadly. Fungi are tricky to identify, but you will be provided with all the information you will need to tell the good from the bad before enjoying your haul with mushrooms on toast in the wild.

Price per private group (up to 30 people): £800
