2021-11-06

FairFood took part in a mycological expedition organized by the Municipality of Arouca and integrated in the Chestnut Festivities.

Under the guidance of Engineer José Pais, an expert in this field, participants were taught how to discover and identify mushrooms in the forest, from the eatable to the ones you only taste once!

More than 40 different species were identified, always calling the attention to the importance of respecting biodiversity. Mushrooms are increasingly being used by chefs in Portuguese gastronomy and are a traditional and seasonal product from the North of Portugal.
