The Swedish forest is literally "buried" in the abundance of a variety of mushrooms. White, aspen, boletus, russula, and, of course, red foxes. Meet them you can not only forest edges, and everywhere: at a bus stop, near houses, in parks, on playgrounds, even in the supermarket. Not a country but a mushroom paradise of some sort! Just envy our mushroom.

After all, it is no secret that we, Russian, I love walking in the forest - mushrooms. And it's not even the process, and a whole culture that has developed over the centuries. For many "special places" is akin to strategic sites - there are not allowed outsiders and not to tell anyone. And objects "quiet hunt" their way in the early morning when the sun has not yet risen, and be sure to race with a neighbor. And what was my surprise when I learned that in Sweden do not accept a single forest mushroom, except for chanterelles. Even white they are not held in high esteem, and mushrooms - like toadstools, are not wanted. Swedes in the woods do not go, do not collect mushrooms - for them it is not ethical. I completely forgot about ethics when walking through the square, I came across the "gold" clearing. Wavy, incredibly large chanterelles, like all the selection, and ask to be put together. To pass, as you know, I could not and ran to collect them. The Swedes were surprised, but I did not care.

I already knew what tonight surprise Swedish friends - cake with chanterelles prescription grandmother. By the way, I have it inveterate mycelium, knows all the special places in the district. A cake that is intended to prepare friends open like French quiche. His recipe is my grandmother told a school friend, who from his youth living in Paris. And yet, the only thing that grandma cooks for me to order.

Satisfied, I went with the full package of chanterelles and all could not understand why the Swedes are buying in a supermarket cultured mushrooms when they have a "gold" is growing under our feet!
