Well Autumn is here, although at least where I am the temperatures have been far from autumnal! The leaves are starting to turn however and the vineyards are looking magnificent, a patchwork quilt of varying colours. Each grape variety has a different autumnal leaf colour and each field tends to have just the one variety of vine.
It has rained quite a bit though and that means that it is also time to go in search of wild mushrooms!! I sometimes think that Spaniards are worse than hobbits in their love of mushrooms. The hills are already full of SUV’s and basket-carrying locals.
The variety we collect here is lactarius deliciosus, and as its name suggests it really is delicious.
What I wanted to share with you today however was a mushroom soup I made that can be eaten immediately or easily be frozen for later.
