Info And Registration

Kids under 10 are free!

Please note: This foray will be filmed and air on national television on our new reality series about mushroom hunting! If you do not want to be on TV, that is fine, you do not have to be interviewed or anything, but filming shots as a group, it is impossible to omit you entirely from being filmed.

Come and join Chris and Levena in Kentucky for the 2014 Morel Mushroom Hunting Club's Foray. If you have followed this site, then you have seen photos posted for the past 8 years of these giant beautiful Morels that we found here in the South! This is a remote location, private land, and we have just received clearance to have a day or two of hunting in this very rare site, where giant Morels are gonna be there dry weather, wet weather, it don't matter, they are always here every year, and just enormous in size. You may find them up to 14 inches or more, and they have 1/2" thick walls! ! Find amazing Morels and learn many other edible varieties. Enjoy the most incredible mushroom cuisine feast that you could ever imagine, all cooked outdoors! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so don't miss out. Call today and register, and receive discounts for paying early.      Limited to the first 20 registrants.

The Food: (The meal alone would go for upwards of $75 per plate in a nice restaurant)

We first start off with a delicious appetizer- Stuffed Jalapeņos, with morels, cream cheese, bacon bits, and ramps or wild onions.

Then, we have a side-dish of a wild edible plant such as Poke or Nettles, something very unique and delicious.

Then of course, fried Morels!

Wild Mushroom Soup- This is my specialty, many have told me "this is literally the best soup I've ever  had!"

Grilled steak, topped with mushroom sauce and finally...

Mushroom alfredo pasta! (Sometimes topped with fiddleheads)


* Assistance with Park Lodging/ or finding a Hotel.

They don't get any prettier than this!
