Within the project "100 mushrooms of the Mirna river basin", a book, a photo manual entitled "Some mushrooms of the Mirna river basin and even more about the nature"
is created. Author of the book is Josip Marino Simic, member of the Association's Steering Committee and representative of the mushroom collectors in the Assembly.
The book has around 170 pages and gives a description of 175 mushrooms with high quality photographs. The description of the mushrooms consists of the anatomy of the mushroom, a description of their habitat, edibility and the time of harvesting .
The book also provides an important section on the medicinal properties of the mushrooms authored by Dr. Jasmina Glamoclija of the Institute for Biological Research "Sinisa Stankovic" in Belgrade. The photo guide also gives us innovative recipes for savory dishes and mushroom delicacies authored by Vesna Arzensek. Some of these mushroom-based recipes have already been tried, and the goal is to bring them to local gastronomy of Istria.
