I have listed here, videos of some of the mushrooms that I can expect to find on my forays.  Some of the videos are my own, others come from YouTube.

I would like to warn you that the information that follows is only intended to be a rough guide to the species that I watch out for. It, in no way, aims to replace a good Mushrooming Guide Book and years of experience. If I make a mistake and, as a result, end up in a coffin – well, that’ll be my fault and I’ll only have myself to blame! If you are picking mushrooms for consummation, you just need to be so careful!

The Cep (Boletus Edulis) is the most exciting find (for me), in the forest. This is the one that all my neighbours will ask me about. This is the one that is the measure of my mushrooming skill or luck.

Even people who can’t cook will be able to make something delicious with this mushroom; selling at 25 euros a kilo in the supermarket (when they have got them), a few hours in the forest on an Autumn Sunday morning can be a really profitable exercise.

Those of my friends and neighbours who only go mushrooming once a year will be looking for this mushroom. And for 6 weeks or so, every Autumn, the bars will be full of gossip about who has found what and where, and who’s luck wasn’t so good.

Chanterelle – Images

The Chanterelle (Cantharellus Cibariuss) is a wonderful find for me.  With a few of these in my basket, I’ll be salivating all the way home from the forest. One of the most prized and sought after wild mushrooms, Chanterelles taste exquisite and have a beautiful apricot aroma with a slightly peppery taste. In the kitchen [...]

The Chanterelle (Cantharellus Cibariuss) is a wonderful find for me.  With a few of these in my basket, I’ll be salivating all the way home from the forest.

One of the most prized and sought after wild mushrooms, Chanterelles taste exquisite and have a beautiful apricot aroma with a slightly peppery taste.

In the kitchen they are suprisingly robust and stand up better to cooking than many other mushrooms; managing to preserve their taste and characteristics over a wide range of cooking treatments.
