Summer may be almost over, but this is the time to fill your larder with all the tasty ingredients the forest has to offer. I’m talking about everything from mushrooms to game. Because what could beat a heap of freshly picked golden chanterelles? Fried in butter and gently salted, served on a slice of tasty bread. A simple pleasure, and almost free. Talking about mushrooms, I do hope this is a good year for ceps. This proud member of the Boletus family, with its nutty flavour is a fine addition to any kitchen. This is something that the Italians know well. They go mad for this particular mushroom and will buy as much of it as they can get their hands on. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out that the dried ceps sold in our delicatessens under an Italian label were actually picked in Sweden.
Get Funghi organizes guided mushroom picking in holidays in Sweden – a perfect way to experience the mushrooms first-hand!
