An eco-adventure in the forested acreage of Bhutan is sure to end up as a unique and memorable holiday experience for many. Foraging for mushrooms in traditional Bhutanese style offers a delightful insight into the culinary heritage of the people here. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn even the basics about the astonishing range of mushrooms there are and be able to identify what is edible and what is not, from the experts; this can be real fun for you to share if those secrets and skills have been handed down from generation to generation amongst family members.
Mushroom hunting in itself is quite an art. Sussing out what will be a gourmet delight or a poisonous variety needs some very careful thought and practice so this is your opportunity to learn hands-on the finer aspects of mushroom foraging. You can also take the opportunity to enjoy the sights and scents of the forest, as Bhutan’s botanical wealth is a legend. Each variety comes with its own distinctive character and peculiarities of its particular habitat – so doing your homework will pay off when it comes to enjoying the fruits…or shall we say ‘shrooms, of your labour. Foraging is a hungry business so select how you want your prize 'shrooms prepared or make them the highlight of the menu in a cookery class arranged just for you and just savour the organic natural flavours that arrive on your plate as you sit down to a fun-filled meal. Having imbibed of all the knowledge on the short trip, don’t be surprised finding yourself hooked on their mystery; you might even end up scrolling through the Net to learn more about mushroom hunting….and maybe, even getting smart enough to venture into it with adventure-loving friends in a more serious way. After all, in some parts of the world some rare mushrooms are worth their price in gold…well almost!!!!
