The chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) is a fungus commonly found in the deciduous or coniferous forests of Europe, though it also grows on more distant continents. This easy to identify and characteristically coloured mushroom can be quickly spotted in the undergrowth, among mosses.
It has a yellow to orange colour, with a round and slightly curved corolla. The chanterelle appears in the forest from the beginning of the summer, usually in groups, and remains present until autumn. It is appreciated by mushroom fans for its sweet and subtle flavours which allow it to be combined with a range of culinary preparations.
