    There was a guy on one of Ray Mears shows, he was some sort of professor or something and a recognized expert. He ate a mushroom he thought was edible, it was until he drank some alcohol and ended up in hospital, I wouldnae risk it without a proper id first.

    We honeymooned in Norway and on our return to Bergen saw queues of people with baskets of mushrooms/fungi outside a large garage/shed. We wandered inside and experts were examining the contents of bags and baskets, ruthlessly discarding the 'do not eat' variety. Such a good idea.

    I wouldn't eat anything I found growing wild even if an expert said it was safe.

    I love seeing fungi when I'm out walking, many of them are very beautiful. Years ago my OH gave me a fungus id book as a gift. I found it impossible to tell what was what. The same species can look like one thing when young, different after a few days, different again as it goes over. Smarter people than me have been caught out https://www.scotsman.com/news/mushro...neys-1-1362703

    I know you can buy impregnated logs so you can grow your own, more unusual varieties. Might be fun!
