John Wright Profile
John is not only an expert mycologist but also a foraging expert; mushrooms, hedgerows, seashores, you name it, he finds it and eats it.    He brings an infectious enthusiasm for the natural world and its bounty.  Over a period of twenty years he has taken around five hundred such forays, many of them based in the south west and at Kingcombe in particular so has a wealth of information at his fingertips to share with you.  John is now one of the country's leading authorities on foraging for food, often seen on national TV including River Cottage.  John contributes to national publications and has written a number of books in The River Cottage foraging series, covering hedgerows, seashore and, of course, fungi!
