Chanterelles in November
Chanterelles. So it was just my luck when, while walking through a Whole Foods grocery store, that I stumbled upon a lovelry bunch of chanterelles! Actually, I need to back up a bit: my obsession with chanterelles came from watching the film La Ceremonie. In one of the scenes, the two main female characters enjoyed freshly picked chanterelles that had been cooked in butter and garlic along with French bread. While I watched the women eating those golden little mushrooms, I knew I had to try them. Back to present: After purchasing a few of them ($29.99 a POUND!), I brought them home with glee, knowing that I was going to cook them soon. Well, soon turned into today. I cooked my little beauties with onions, garlic and olive oil and they smelled delightful!
