Cèpes & Morilles
To the Gourmet, Morilles and Cèpes are treasure trove. Chateaubriand and Escoffier, responsible for classic cuisine, have acknowledged their debt to them.

These are the fragile damsels of the woodlands;
shy, unassuming in appearance and the quarry of the specialist fungi-hunter. Not surprisingly, the market always exceeds the supply and for the finest quality, the demand can barely be met.
