2014 Ohio Motherlode Morel Foray

Info And Registration

April 28th-30th, 2014

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 Matherly and Levena near Columbus, Ohio to hunt the Motherlode of Morels, just waiting to be found! We have obtained a special permission on 4 or more tracts of private land to hunt on that contain the most unbelievable Morels to be found in this entire area! Several prime hunting spots will be searched.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity so make sure you register immediately, as it will be on a first come first served basis, and 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)
