Bob Blumer is a chef, author, gastronaut, TV host, eight-time Guinness World Record holder, and, it goes without saying, an excellent judge of quality when it comes to wild mushrooms.

Bob is a big fan of Island Planet Foragers products, and over the years, he has

made numerous recipes with the wild mushrooms he has purchased from us.

In his latest book, Flavorbomb, he features our dried morels in a photo montage of his favorite go-to ingredients.  Those are our little guys identified by the arrow.

We couldn't be more proud. 

The Magic of the Mushroom!

"Umami" Delicious

Mushrooms have a flavor rich in "umami": savory, satisfying, distinct and full-bodied.  Like fine wines, British Columbia wild mushrooms are prized by chefs and food lovers for their own unique characteristics -- delightful combinations of peppery, nutty, fruity, or woody accents.  


Fat-free, gluten-free, low in sodium and calories, rich in fiber and protein, and packed with nutrients, mushrooms truly are a natural "superfood".  As the only non-animal source of vitamin D, then can even make you a little happier.  Wild mushrooms are naturally higher in vitamin D content than cultivated varieties, which are exposed to artificial UV radiation.


What's better with British Columbia wild mushrooms?  Everything!  Rice, pasta, and potatoes.  Soups, stews, stir-fries, and salads.  Beef, pork, fish, chicken, and seafood.  With Island Planet's blended bits and powder, it's as easy as reaching for the spice rack! 

Eggs.  Did we mention eggs?


The cap and stem we usually call a mushroom is actually the "fruiting body" of a much larger fungal organism.  Most of this fungus is growing underground, and continuously producing more fruiting bodies.  With respect for the forest, and careful harvesting, picking a mushroom is less harmful than picking an apple from a tree. 

Our Island Planet

As our name indicates, we recognize and respect how extraordinary and fragile this marvelous planet is.  We tread lightly in search of nature's flavourful gifts.  Our small, family operation makes it possible to control every aspect of harvesting, processing, and packaging.  Each and every mushroom is selected and handled with care.  This ensures that our product meets the highest quality standards, and that the forest is able to continue producing this magical, delectable, healthy, and nutritious food source.

Do you pay more for this kind of attention to detail, and labor-intensive processing?  Nope.  Our prices are always competitive, and often better than other suppliers.  Because we also care about you. 

Does this mean other suppliers don't care about you, or the mushrooms, or the forest?  Or begin each day twirling their mustaches and imagining new ways to exploit people and the planet?

Of course not.  We would never even suggest such a thing.  We're sure they are respectable, upstanding, planetary citizens.  Who just happen to have twirly mustaches.
