Wild or cultivated mushrooms, porcini mushrooms, chanterelles, morels, button mushrooms…  they are a pure pleasure to eat and offer a wide variety of recipes to try from.

The Paris mushroom also known as button mushroom, which can be found all year round, has a lovely history closely linked to the French capital, Paris. Today produced mainly in the Loire Valley (or in Eastern Europe, pay attention to the origins!) They take their name from the fact that they were originally cultivated in Parisian basements, ancient quarries and even the catacombs.
