and more

According to Chef Giorgio Locatelli Italians only really pick Porcini funghi but in Abruzzo I've certainly heard of other types being gathered.

Not perhaps those I've photographed though.

I'm happy to stick to the ones that I know mainly chanterells and ceps but also a fungi called 'chicken in the woods' in the UK and a big sulphur yellow fungi that grows in trees;in fact the biggest amount that I ever picked was growing in an old willow tree by the banks of the River Cam on one wet August afternoon.My sister's husband who is Moroccan had to get it for me as it was growing too far up the tree.He didnt like the idea of us eating it!It tasted wonderful!
