Re: Chicken (of the woods)

Mushroom season came early to NW England, I found a huge crop of chicken of the woods in some local woodland in June! I made 2 risottos; first time cooking with it but obviously it's unmistakable − as long as it's not growing on a birch (absorbs toxins from the tree) then it's edible*.

The orange really is incredible, an exciting find.

*don't hold me to that, that's just what one book stated!Oak is definitely safe though, I've tested that one
