Week 41 2017


It's mushroom season, and we've had a delicious mushroom feast from the ones growing in our gardens.  Don't go out and pick mushrooms unless you know what you're doing.  But if you have some mushrooms and you want to know if they are safe to eat, take them to your local pharmacy and they will be able to tell you if they are good to eat or not.

I like mine cooked with garlic and butter and served with fresh baguette.

Whatever you do this week in the Dordogne and Gironde regions, have a lovely time.

Best wishes,
