Testimonials

Maria's porcini camp was great!  She walked us through the identifying features, habitat, and indicator species before leading a forage through likely territory.  Throughout the day, Maria shared her deep knowledge of the local ecology, identified other mushrooms and plants we found while hunting, and shared stories about other mushrooming adventures.  The camp concluded with an incredible campfire porcini risotto for lunch.  While conditions on the day-of weren't ideal, we retraced our steps a couple weeks later and found several enormous porcinis!  Andreas Bastian

 

Maria & Flora Jayne

Your Guides

Maria Finn is an author and chef living on a houseboat in Sausalito. Before adopting Flora Jayne, the truffle dog-in-training, she was an ocean faring cat lady. (She still loves the sea and her cats). She often writes about food and sustainability and so when she began working as a private chef, she focused on sourcing regenerative foods and food she forages along the California Coast. From seaweed to chanterelles, she believes that harvesting wild food is an intimate and visceral way to connect with nature.

She smelled her first black Périgord truffle about 10 years ago. It reached inside her and made her want it more than anything in the world. This desire has led her to the forest and her truffle-dog-in-training, Flora Jayne.
