The 1st Oslo Mycophagists’ Table

The scene of the first gathering of 
mycophagists (one that eats fungi) in Oslo, Norway.
 
I had announced the initiative before Xmas that I would arrange 
a potluck dinner early this year, 
modelled after the NYMS Mycophagists Table,
 
Eight adventurous souls rose to the occasion.
And what an unusual and fun evening of good food, drink and company we had!
