Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius)
Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) is one of the most popular mushrooms, sought-after by foragers and chefs alike. Their bright golden color and delicate aroma, make them a coveted ingredient in culinary circles, and are often refered to as forest gold.
Chanterelles are egg-yellow with blunt, forked ribs on the underside of the cap. The cap is funnel-shaped and with a wavy rim on well-grown specimens. The only mushroom that can be mistaken for true chanterelle is false chanterelle. No poisonous mushrooms are quite like chanterelles
