- n. A person who likes hunting for, cooking or eating mushrooms and other edible fungi
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Now I have nibbled the sacred mushroom of Mexico (that was a snack I'll be a long time forgetting) and I've sucked up my share of buttons with steak, but I am no mycophile and I wouldn't know an Agaricus from an asparagus.
I also got a little spinning in, haven't spun much lately but Kristine gave me a gorgeous gift of mushroom-dyed fiber and mycophile I am -- couldn't resist.
If you are only brave enough to try one species, have a go at the manifestly obvious giant puffball, and you will become a mycophile for life.
