As every year, with the autumn season arrives "mushrooming", or the collection of "bolets" as they are called in Majorcan. Increasingly popular in the Balearic Islands, this hobby requires a thorough knowledge, not only to avoid the confusion of eatible mushrooms with toxic ones, but also to avoid the destruction of the growth cycle of these species.
Mancor de la Vall, a charming village located in the heart of a small lush valley, is the ideal place to practice this activity. They have even their own mushroom festival dedicated to this collection. Collecting mushrooms seems a perfect opportunity to visit this beautiful village that seems like it comes out of a fairy tale.
Prepare good hiking boots, a large basket and a sweater. At your return home, smoky and tasty rural recipes with the Balearic fungus are awaiting: the "esclatasangs" flavored Mancor de la Vall.
