The Cep (Boletus Edulus) 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.

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.
