With Alan Muskat, The Mushroom Man Muskat_Alan.jpg
Join Asheville's epicure of the 
obscure, Alan Muskat, on a quest for 
the edible and incredible wild 

Alan really knows 
how to pick ‘em. Since 
1995, he’s sold hundreds of 
punds of wild mushrooms a 
year to restaurants & hotels 
including The Biltmore 
Estate & The Grove Park 

Author of Wild Mushrooms: 
A Taste of Enchantment, this 
stand-up comedian has 
popped up in The New 
Yorker and in Country 
Living. He even appeared 
on the Travel Channel’s 
Bizarre Foods with celebrity 
epicure Andrew Zimmern.  

During the workshop we will sample “exotic” local wild fruit, ants 
and other extreme cuisine.  Learn how to safely find, identify, 
appreciate — maybe even eat — these 
elusive delights! 

Workshop will be held at

1480 Fork Creek Mill in Seagrove 
Fee: $45  
Includes 40 pg

I was just thinking I needed a refresher course with Alan, with all the mushrooms that have been popping up here. Will have to see if I can swing it.
