The first autumn rainfall signals the start of mushroom picking season in Trás-os-Montes.
In the enchanted forests of the Montesinho Natural Park, “setas”, “rapazinhos”, and “míscaros” multiply and can be picked for private consumption following specific rules that determine harvest methods. Mushroom picking is a common practice throughout the country, with tours even organised for this purpose, with specialists to ensure that only the “good” mushrooms are picked – remember, all mushrooms are edible, but some of them just once. To have wild mushrooms delivered to our table, we can count on José Carlos Nunes owner of the Fungus company, which supplies a wide variety of this product.
