Welcome back to the All Things Food podcast. This week host Nickie Hursthouse speaks with Liv Sisson. Liv is originally from Virginia, USA but has been living in Ōtautahi, Christchurch for the past three years. Liv writes, lives and breathes food, foraging and fungi. She's currently working on a book about the weird and wonderful world of fungi in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Take a listen to find out:
What edible fungi could you come across in your area of NZ?What else is out there to forage apart from fungi?How do fungi grow and how come fungi pops up around the place where people aren’t necessarily growing food?What weeds in your garden can you actually eat? (if you’ve done your research!)Where does one even begin to start foraging?How do you know what is safe to eat or what is poisonous?Make sure you check out Liv’s foraging adventures on Instagram @liv_mosss.
