Fall is the best season to forage for mushrooms in Catalonia. This year has been bountiful and the forest has been filled with people carrying out wicker baskets full of beautiful mushrooms.
After I had filled my own basket a few days ago, I photographed one of my favorite mushrooms, the Yellow Foot (“Camagroc” in Catalan).
The Yellow Foot is an amazing mushroom. It has a strong flavor, making it perfect for use in many different recipes: from omelets and risottos to stews and soups. Not only is it delicious, it is beautiful.
