So I was thrilled when a work colleague presented me with this treasure trove of Saffron Milk Caps he'd foraged. The botanical name is lactarius deliciosus, and deliciosus they are. Quickly fried in butter, parsley and garlic and served with a chunk of crusty no knead bread.
The perfect savoury antidote to a chocolate filled weekend. My colleague did very kindly divulge their location, under a cone of silence, and I'm sworn to secrecy, otherwise, he WILL have to kill me. I'll be heading to this secret spot next time it rains, on a foraging stealth mission myself, well, with a little helper or two. Can't wait!
