100 Edible Mushrooms
With a dash of humor and a dollop of science, Michael Kuo selects the top 100 mushrooms best suited for cooking. Like Kuo’s very popular book Morels, 100 Edible Mushrooms is written in the author’s inimitable, engaging, and appealing style, taking the reader on the hunt through forest and kitchen in search of mycological pleasures and culinary delights.
Kuo describes in detail how to identify each species, where and when to find them, and how to cook them in creative and delicious recipes. The mushrooms presented in the book are the most often eaten varieties, and a description of the button mushrooms found in the grocery store is included. All of the mushrooms have at least one full-color illustration and some several more to aid in identifying and distinguishing look-alike and nonedible species.
An indispensable book for mushroom hunters, naturalists, and cooks
Michael Kuo, an English teacher in Illinois, is the developer of mushroomexpert.com, a popular online resource for mushroom identification and morel hunting.

Review: 100 Edible MushroomsUser Review - Benjamin Plume - Goodreads
Excellent. As a beginning mushroom hobbyist I found this guide superbly instructive. The author also runs a website, mushroomexpert.com, which is equally excellent. Read full review

Great descriptions, beautiful photography, and I think half the mushrooms in my yard are edible, but I'm still too coward to try any of them! Read full review
