Best Mushroom for Beginners?

Please give me suggestions of the best type of mushrooms to start with!

I've been keen to start growing for ages but don't know where to start. I'm a pretty good gardener, but mushrooms are like little aliens to me. I live in an Alpine type climate in South Africa if that helps. Have access to everything but the rarest spores.

What's good and easy? Something my fussy family will eat? Or something medicinal?
