>chanterelle vs. hedgehog


We are talking about the best of the bunch. Morel, porcini, pine, chanterelle.
Hedgehog mushroom
(Dentinum Repandum or Umbilicatum) is one of the super delicacies of the fungal kind. Also known as sweet tooth, it boasts fine teeth instead of gills under the cap.

If you are lucky, you'll find some at your farmers' market.
