Cèpes are back: not just a mushroom

Living in the french countryside has some serious advantages …

Have you ever eaten cèpe mushrooms? ……..They are unbeatable fried with garlic & shallots in duck fat.

And there are other recipes as well…

Some people think they are a meal in themselves…

But they make the best mushroom omelette ever!

Some call them Porcini (in Italy) .. others .. Boletus edulis

They are free in the forest  ……    in the right weather conditions.

If you are lucky enough to find them…  ‘coz no-one’s gonna tell ya where there are!
