Wild Mushroom Foraging – Chanterelles a plenty

A fun day was had by all in our very own secret wild mushroom haven (suffice to say it’s somewhere in Scotland!). Despite a rainy start en-route, the weather took a pleasant turn for the better just as we stepped into the secluded forest. We noted a distinct lack of Ceps or Boletus edulis, if you’d prefer, a mushroom that lends itself very well to drying and storing for the winter season. That disappointment was quickly set aside, however, as we discovered a blanket of the startling orangey coloured, peachy scented Chanterelle.

Those glorious chanterelles will no doubt find their way into a number of tasty dishes. The Wild Mushroom season in Scotland is relatively short, running from late summer to very early winter, so get in touch now if you wish to take a trip out to this enchanted forest of culinary treasures.

    Are you doing a ” forage” for mushrooms this year? We live in Perth and are desperate to learn about wild mushrooms!
