|Mushrooms appeared all round town|
I will confess that for a day devoted to mushrooms there was a distinct lack of fungi! But it has been so dry that they have been severely reduced in numbers. There were a couple of stands selling them, giant cepes and some strange spongy ones stood out. I had a chat with the lady from 'la confrérie mycogastronomique gaillardaise' ( this national association was formed to promote any activity related to wild or cultivated mushrooms and we had representatives from Brive) who was kind enough to tell us about the fungi they had on display, which were good to eat and how to cook them. I will say now that I am not going to go round the woods picking and feasting, reputable sellers only for me.
It was a lovely day, the fête well supported by villagers and visitors and congratulations to Corrèze Animation for their organisation.
