Forest Fungus a la France

During the past winter months, I spent on-off free time translating a French mushroom identification guide. Mountain Joe took said translation with him on his latest woodland expedition….and brought back a sack of very dangerous looking fungus. I’m confident that our visit to a local neighbor to confirm said fungus was indeed of the ‘don’t eat that’ variety has become the latest talk of our village. ‘Did you hear about the mushrooms that those crazy Americans picked in the forest?!’
