The magic of mushrooms 🍄

Wednesday we went to pick mushrooms with Benjamin, a professional picker.

We were looking for chanterelles, which grow near 40 to 60 year old Douglas fir but we saw a lot of different mushrooms.

Some mushrooms were edible like chanterelles and winter chanterelles.

Or like lactaria or butterwitch (but not very good) ...

And others that are little or not at all edible ... such as the black helvelle, the coral mushroom or the fly agaric. It was a bit difficult to walk in the forest.

But mom was happy to find her first chanterelle!

Then we went to see where they dry the mushrooms and where they turn them into different cooked recipes. Underneath: dried blue chanterelles, drying rack with pine needles and juniper berries.

This day was sporty, very interesting and wet! A big thank you to Benjamin and Célia from Forest for Dinner for this great experience and the excellent evening spent with them :) Post written and illustrated by Morgan and Elo.
