Come experience the fascinating and complicated world of wild fungi, food that must be sought on its own terms in the wild spaces of the BC coast. Join celebrated chef and wild mushroom expert Bill Jones on a journey through the forests of Foxglove Farm as he illuminates the art and science of mushroom foraging and identification. Back in the kitchen we’ll learn from Bill how to use these forest treasures to create delicious meals.

Bill Jones is a French-trained chef who apprenticed at Michelin-starred restaurants in Alsace with stops in London, Hong Kong and Vancouver. On Vancouver Island he has manned the stoves at Sooke Harbour House and continues to cook, create and teach in his own professional kitchen at Deerholme Farm in Glenora. Bill is the author of ten cookbooks; two winning World Cookbook awards. This year Jones’ new release The Deerholme Cookbook will be available at our workshop. Jones is a renowned expert on Pacific Northwest foods, wild mushrooms, foraged plants and First Nations cooking.
