Hunting season has begun and not only for wildboar (actually the wild boar hunting starts this Saturday).
Mushroom hunters can be seen all over the country site. Someone from a nearby village always parks his car near us so he can quickly reach his favourite mushroom hunting grounds. While walking in the garden I encountered him and we had a little chat.
No Porcini purtroppo but chanterelle mushrooms, Gallinacci or Galletti in Italian. There is a local name but I always forget it, sounds like pigione. Our hunter had been emptying his hunting bag several times which resulted in a nice pile in the boot of the car. The question how he is was going to prepare them was answered with a short, fa mia moglie. Poor woman as you can see it will need quite some water and time to clean this pile.
