Caught the habit from my granny who learned from necesity during WWll. Have also done one of those short courses in mycology. I also don't manage to get out into foraging areas nearly often enough, and my one and only attempt to grow some failed miserably. Favourites round here are parasol and giant puffball. Overall all time favourite is chanterrelle. Best 'others' are cep, beefstake, oyster, hedgehog and cauliflower. Hmm. That cauliflower was divine... maybe its an all time fave? Those trompet de mort look scrumptious!
