Mushroom season

Catalonia enjoys a well-known tradition for mushroom picking. The moment the autumn rains begin to fall, a huge number of people head for the woods eager to spend some time relaxing and filling their baskets with mushrooms.

But caution is necessary: some species are toxic and very dangerous.

Ignorance and confusion over edible varieties that look like others can often give rise to food poisoning, on occasions with a fatal outcome.

The basic criterion to avoid this is to eat only those mushrooms you know you can identify without a shadow of a doubt.
