Chanterelles are a familiar favourite for foraging fungophiles, with their bright yellow colouring and fan-like shape. They live in the woods and are saprophytic (living off of dead organic material) or mycorrhizal (forming relationships with the roots of trees).
They have a fruity aroma, like apricots or pumpkins, and often have a mildly peppery taste. Favourite methods of preparation are sauteed, or as a cream of Chanterelle soup.
