July 2018 / AMC Monthly Meeting

Scott Pavelle talks all about boletes.

An attorney from Pittsburgh, Scott is a member of the Western Pennsylvania mushroom club. He's knowledgeable, funny, and knows his boletes! His talk will include what they are and how to find them. These fleshy fungi are eaten, used medicinally, and are also used for dyeing.

He'll walk the group through using a new "synoptic" key he developed to ID boletes. He'll also give some culinary tips for cooking them.
