Foraging

I was going round our fields yesterday with the chef from a local gastro pub. It was raining hard so it was a cursory exploration. Even so we found several types of fungi- some edible, some questionably so (including a single fly agaric)-and a chestnut tree that was tucked away in an unpromising section of hedge. Matthew- who was on site doing something else- waved some green stuff at us. "Ground elder, tastes like celery," he said. And so it does. I never knew. Our property is crawling with the stuff.
