As promised on my previous post, here are some Italian mushrooms.
I went on holiday to visit my son, Ben, who is farming in Italy. When I arrived at the small town of Borgo val di Taro, near where he lives, there was a mushroom festival going on. The streets were lined with stalls selling mushrooms and other local produce. The man in the picture above is selling mushroom driers, an essential piece of kitchen equipment in the area, so you can keep all those lovely porcini to use through the winter.
