Totally local and seasonal, packed with health benefits, and slightly fraught with danger, mushrooms are just some of the forest's edible treats. Join chef Frédéric Baësa on a foraging trip in the Laurentians to learn not only how to differentiate poisonous from edible fungi, plants, and herbs, but how to best cook with them.
