MUSHROOMS, AN AUTUMN DELICACY
With the arrival of autumn our palate prepares to taste one of the finest delicacies of the season: mushrooms.
Thanks to the late summer rain, forests and mountains all over Spain will become a wonderful “pantry” in which we can find an infinite variety of edible mushrooms that, after passing through the kitchen, become authentic delicacies.
Two of the most sought-after varieties of the season are:
- The Boletus mushroom, which is characterized by its large white trunk and its brown coloured cap. Its aroma and intense flavour make it the perfect companion for meats and foie gras.
- Rebollones or Níscalos, can be recognised by their characteristic orange colour. They are an extraordinary addition to stews and meats.
But in addition to their incredible taste, mushrooms are a perfect food for our diet due to their low fat content and very high percentage of water. Although there are varieties that can be found all year round, autumn is the season par excellence to consume them. Their great versatility in the kitchen allows you to taste them in an infinite number of guises such as: stews, purees, sautéed… All of which will have you coming back for more!
Here at Boutique Hotels Spain we are going to propose different ways for you to enjoy these delicacies prepared in our finest kitchens:
