*Chef Ian Vair began studying wild mushrooms over 20 years ago. Leading foraging workshops, and vending Vermont farmers markets for 10 years, has strengthened his knowledge in the field of mycology.  Today, Ian’s focus is on teaching local workshops and creating YouTube videos, to educate the public. Join the “Green Mountain Chef” as he explores both medicinal and culinary uses of the fungal kingdom.
