The chanterelle is one of the world's best-known choice wild mushrooms.
Chanterelles are great sautéed in olive oil with a little garlic. Traditionally added to omelets and egg dishes, they're excellent in vegan mock egg dishes as well, and they can't be beat in soups, stews, or casseroles. They also provide vitamin A.
The flashy Chanterelle is one of the most distinctively flavored mushrooms in all the world. It has been described as having the aroma of apricots and tasting more like a flower then a mushroom.
