To some, filling a luxury Mercedes with freshly foraged, soil-covered mushrooms would fall under the "bad idea" category. But dirty hands are encouraged during this excursion (offered weekly for the next month). After foraging for mushrooms in the valley and enjoying a picnic lunch with Larry Evans, the 'Indiana Jones of mushroom hunting,' participants will hitch a ride (in a Mercedes, of course) back to Flame. Executive chef Jason Harrison will lead a 'shroom demo before whipping up a decadent meal showcasing the day's discoveries. Sat or Sun 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
