About: Come fall, as humidity sits upon our valley like a thick wet blanket, fruit stands come alive with various plastic containers filled with exotic mushrooms. Many of these Spanish mushrooms are so incredible ugly that your wondering if your local vender isn’t trying to pull over your eyes, selling you something more fitting for your compost heap than your evening meal. Trust me, they’re not! They’re selling you gorgeous, meaty delectable fungus! If you can plan a visit to Spain during the mushroom season, November to February, do it! Let Catavino take you on a mushroom tour you’ll never forget!
