This summer has been quite warm, but it has been pouring down most of the time here in Oslo. This has, however, a few advantages. Hydroelectric electricity will be cheaper the coming winter. And the forests are full of mushrooms. You don’t have to go far to fill you baskets.
We have picked many kilos of Craterellus tubaeformis or Funnel Chantarelle. Most of it is now safely in the freezer after being sautéed in its own juice. Some of it is for the dinner table. What to drink with it? Perhaps it is time to try the new India Saison from Nøgne Ø? Brewed in cooperation with Bridge Road Brewers in Australia, who also brought some Australian hops, according to the label.
