Publisher description: MYCOPHILIA surveys all of the new science in the field of mycology: biology, wild crafting, cultivation, nutrition, medicine, psychedelics, new technology, and evolution and symbiosis. It reports on the personalities in the field, both living and lenegendary: Gary Lincoff, Tom Volk, Paul Stamets, the late John Allegro, and many more. MYCOPHILIA also reports on the many forays and festivals held throughout the year, including the Illinois State Morel Mushroom Hunting Championship; northern California's SOMA Camp, with food and wine unlike that of any other camp you've ever been to; and the merrily capricious Telluride Mushroom Festival. Whether you're interest in mushrooms is culinary, scientific, recreational, or entrepreneurial, MYCOPHILIA will open your eyes to the vast and bizarre world of fungi and their role in the deeply complex yet profoundly graceful interplay of life on Earth.
A scientific and cultural exploration of one of one of the most provocative and sought-after foods on Earth examines the role of fungi as exotic delicacy, curative, poison, and hallucinogen.
