Mushrooms, the treasures of the undergrowth

Mushrooms, the treasures of the undergrowth

Mushrooms, porcini in particular, are found in many of the recipes that are typical of the cuisine of Piacenza, especially as an ingredient of sauces and dressings. It is with mushrooms, for example, that you prepare the sauce, necessarily a red sauce with a tomato base, that is used to dress tortelli as an alternative to butter and sage, as well as many other traditional dishes such as chicche della nonna, tagliatelle and gnocchi.

The last weekend of September every year the Festa del Fungo is held in San Giorgio Piacentino, with the Palio del Fungaiolo (Mushroom-Hunter`s Trophy), an event that you will find really gets you involved.  In addition to an exhibition of the products of the undergrowth, the food stalls and various other events, the fair includes a challenge to the last mushroom between expert mushroom-hunters divided into teams.
