An Introduction to the Edible, Poisonous and Medicinal Fungi of Northern Laos

If you've ever wanted to know about the fascinating world of fungi as it relates to Laos, this is your book. For a lot of you out there, your introduction to Lao fungi would like be the mushrooms used in Lao food. You'd likely hear the Lao name but not know the translation. This book provides the Latin scientific names, Lao names and common English names.

Lao people love mushrooms mostly for culinary purposes and more recently for medicinal purposes. Nowadays, you also have find small scale mushroom farmers and producers in Laos growing mushrooms using substrate in plastic bags with mycelium culture inside it. But more often then not, most mushrooms are still collected from the forest and jungle and then carried to market by women. As such, most people buy their mushrooms at the market, however there are still those that forage for them. They know when they spring and where to go pick them. The important part of course was knowing what was poisonous and what wasn't. I'm happy to report that this book also shares that information as well.

This book is available in hardcover for purchase in bookstores in Laos and parts of Thailand. It is also generously available for FREE in digital pdf copy by the authors, at this link.

This book is written in both Lao and English, contains 142 species along with references to 260 closely related species and includes 330 color photos.  For the complete list of contents, please see below.
