Mushroom Season in the South of France

At this time of your as you drive out into the hills and countryside that surround the Cote d'Azur then you will doubtless see hunters and foragers. Not only has the hunting started in earnest but it's mushroom season and the French are out searching for the many types of mushrooms that grow wild throughout the South of France and Provence.

But how do you now which are delicious and which are dangerous? Easy! You take them to your local pharmacy and they will identify them for you, separating those that you can safely enjoy and those which are not.

And of course there are many delicious recipes in which you can use your carefully collected treasures.
