Mushroom Foraging at Dalkeith Country Park

Event Details

As the hottest part of the year begins to fade, the undergrowth comes alive with amazing fungi. Allow us to guide you on a journey to understand a fascinating form of life often shunned by modern palates. This course will show you how to identify many of the most frequently-occurring edible fungi, illuminate the dangers of mushroom foraging and how to avoid them, and give tips on what to do with your finds.

The walk will take between 3 & 4hrs, most of which is outdoors and away from facilities. Please eat well beforehand and bring water. Some light snacks will be provided as we recap our finds, but nothing substantial. Please bring any packed lunch or snacks you may want afterward.

This walk takes place across maintained paths, but a basic level of mobility is required, as some steep sections can be a little treacherous when wet. Please wear suitable footwear and be prepared for rain.

Foraging Courses Leader at Coeur Sauvage

Sam is the natural bard of the company. He joined in 2021. Sam was a bartender and competitive mixologist in Scotland’s exciting gastronomical and cocktail world; the Coronavirus pandemic allowed him to assess hospitality’s impact on his health and well-being. He had taken great solace in the quiet of the forests in contrast to the chaos of the bar and found inspiration in the new flavours he was discovering and so, when the opportunity to join forces with Coeur Sauvage, Sam jumped at the chance. 

Sam is a determined fungiphage, and well on his way to having identify and eaten 100 species of fungi. The child of two educators and with previous experience running whisky and gin tasting sessions, Sam is more than ready to share his experiences in the field of foraging.
