Porcini mushrooms

Now is the time for porcini mushrooms in our area. It has been very dry, not good for mushrooms, but some have been gathered in Garfagnana and have appeared at Ristorante Del Sonno in La Villa.

The recent rain should have more growing in the forests…we wait patiently or impatiently as the case may be.
