Chanterelle (cantharellus cibarius)

A first rate wild mushroom, also known as a "girolle". They look like an apricot-coloured curved trumpet, and also have an apricot aroma.

They are found in woods, in particular beech and oak from mid-summer until late autumn.

They are delicious in sauces, and with eggs or simply fried in butter with chopped shallots and garlic.
