Michel Jansen-Reynaud, former Sooke Harbour House waiter and active mushroom forager, found this very rare mushroom north of Sooke. Although this is a good edible mushroom, it should be picked with restraint.
I found this text book cep or porcini, Boletus edulis, on September 9th.
Michel Jansen-Reynaud is delivering the King Bolete or porcini and is probably the forager with the greatest knowledge of mushrooms and good sites between Sooke and Port Renfrew. The mushrooms he delivers are always impeccable. Tuesday, September 21, 2010
