I just love the amazing variety of mushrooms over there, I love them :-) We certainly don't have that over here!

LULU - have booked 2010 trip to France with a week in the ALsace and then to Auvergne area around Clermond Ferrand to explore - would be a bit close to your area - any suggestions for this area?? Dale

There is a stunning variety to choose from in France!

Clermont-Ferrand is quite a distance from us so I have no advice to give, I'm afraid.
Sounds like a great trip you'll be taking!

Mushroom hunting is a very popular pastime where we live. There are so many varieties to discover!

Hope you found some!

Actually these are catalans, though they look like girolles. This was my first encounter with them. Have you ever tried them?
