Your (dethroned) Truffle Queen, who's honor now belongs to Val


Portland, OR
Hometown: Portland

Organizer since:

June 8, 2013

Have you ever been out mushroom hunting before? If so, what mushrooms and where?

Yes! Truffles are my specialty, Chanterelles, and Morels (although the Morels elude me most often! ;o)

Are you familiar with forging for any other edibles? If so, what and where?!

I took a forging class years ago where we learned to identify wild watercress, onion, among other edibles, and learned you can take the fuzzies off cattails and use them in your pancake batter! I haven't done this before because I want to find them well off a roadside, but understand they have a very "nutty" flavor.

Absolutely everyone can share something with the group! What can you share? Recipes? Storage Ideas? Knowledge of identifyng? Knowledge of areas to hunt? Using these edible materials? If so, what would you be willing to share?

Definitely! I have a many great recipes, some storage/preserving ideas, can identify about 10 of the best mushrooms to eat, and have a few areas to hunt that I am willing to share!


Truffle season will be coming late November/December! Looking forward to gonin' on the hunt with other fungi's!!!

What Rene is saying about this Meetup Group

Portland mushroom hunters are awesome! I had a good time! Thank you all for coming!
