Cantharellus cibarius

Postby stepbystep » Thu 16 Jul, 2009 7:24 pm

Hi folks,

I have a friend visiting the state in spring, he is a world renowned chef and a bit of a mushroom expert.

Apparently the Cantharellus cibarius or Chanterelle or Golden Chanterelle mushroom occurs in Tassie.
It is associated with the Myrtle Beech forests, but my question is;
Does anyone have knowledge of this fungi or where there might be hotspots in the forests of Tas. We are happy to travel anywhere to find them.

P.S. Any other exotic edible fungi info will be most welcome. Bear in mind I am accompanied by an expert mushroom identifier and are well aware of the number of toxic friends the Chanterelle has.

Dan

Everything to do with Fungi is suss corvus, never trust google :roll: so tread carefully and check this post in spring. If successful I will give detailed info and recipes.

Although they are not strictly wilderness bushwalking I have some great locations for Porcini, Woodblewitt and Slippery Jacks in southern Tasmania. Delicious :D

Yeah Tassie fungi is still a massive mystery with amazing potential, it's a case of who wants to be the guinea pig!

I would be really interested in making contact with anyone with REAL knowledge of the subject.

What intersets me more than anything is how do you test the theory?

I still don't get it.
I know poo... is a mushy that the Japanese pay a lot for, but I can't figure out any of this! :roll: :?
But then, it doesn't really matter does it? :wink:

I did some googling so I know what mushroom we're talking about.

mushroomexpert.com

wikipedia

Image results from google

This link might show how difficult it might be to locate the exact species you are looking for.
But I know I have seen this one somewhere, I will search my photos and see if I can find it so I can see where it was and whether it was the same.

Sorry stepbystep,
My fault entirely, perhaps I have been imbibing too much in Amanita muscaria to behave :?

yeah yeah, I spent a bit of time in the forests of Balingup SW WA, they have some very magical mushrooms.

But the Amanita muscaria come with a warning :evil:

Ok serious,
Cantharellus cibarius var.australiensis can be recognised by its uneven funnel-shape ,deeply decurrent often forked gills and apricot colouration .Broken flesh has a faint but distinct apricot -like odour.

If you have every heard of a fish called the "Red Emperor" from the tropics?

Sorry Brett, being from WA I have caught and devoured many Red Emperors, we used to use them as cray bait.

We were all young once, I actually helped make a doco on the subject called 'fungimentary'.
Quite well known in the alternative cinema of the early 90's.

Just imagine you are staring at a painting for 3 hours, but it's really a photo that you've been looking at for 5 mins, that's a fungimentary! :lol:

Not cool at all, I did see quite a few folks that had pretty negative reactions, let's not encourage the kiddies.

Be very careful when fiddling with fungi!

P.S. Cool in the 90's was just called cool(we weren't all that imaginative :lol: )hmmmmmm......

Better still, don't fiddle with Fungi perhaps :?

Not tried mushies myself, but heard of a number of people that have permanent brain disorders because of them.
Doesn't sound like the kind of photo appreciation I need...

It would be nice to find out what ones were safe to eat though (food). Problem is there are so many that I reckon it would be easy to get it wrong, and the results could be fatal.

Particularly in Tassie, the Europeans have been testing on themselves for centuries, and because of the destruction of the indigenous culture in Tassie(and most of the mainland), I'm sure a lot of valuable knowledge has also disappeared :cry:

And I agree, steer clear of all fungi unless 100% sure, some species are only edible for a few days of their growth cycle, and toxic for the rest.
