Selby Shrooms was founded by Jonathan MacGibbon originally as a blog to report interesting mushrooms species.
I was walking my dog one day around Selby and noticing the literal tonne of Saffron Milkcap biomass that was being ignored and rotting all around the area. We decided that if they are going to go to waste anyway, why not get them out and available to gourmet kitchens everywhere.
Since then I have also been amassing taxonomical information on species of interest that I have encountered locally – some considered traditionally to be edible, some just really of interest. They are all blogged here. The images are all mine except where otherwise credited. We don’t mind other people using these images (several have turned up on social media uncredited) but it would be cool if they were credited to us as they constitute considerable effort out in the field in my own time and at my own expense.
