Our Review of Bill O'Dea - Irish Mycophagist

Bill is a passionate Irish Mycophagist, he loves his mushrooms and has been running mushroom hunts for over 20 years. During mushroom season, Bill can be found roaming the Irish countryside in search of these delicious specialities. Bill studied his craft in University College Dublin and delights in sharing his knowledge on the fascinating, amusing and sometimes horrific aspects of fungi and their relationship to the planet and the other natural kingdoms, with all those who will listen. Bill has made quite a name for himself in the world of foraging and can often be found on National TV and Radio discussing all things foraging and fungi related. 

Bill hosts mushroom hunts during the autumn season when wild fungi is bountiful across the Irish countryside. Budding foragers join Bill as he picks and identifies a variety of mushrooms totalling over 50. Once the foraging is complete, the guests join Bill in cooking up the mushrooms with a variety of tasty herbs and seasonings. Of course emphasis is placed on edible mushrooms!
