It must be taken into account that mushrooms and fungi absorb everything that is around them and it is important to be very clear about the variety of mushroom that we are going to consume because not all of them are edible, so it is better to buy them instead of picking them from the field if we are not experts.

One of the most common is the mushroom, one of the most consumed mushrooms worldwide. They are very versatile in the kitchen and their nutritional properties provide us with great health benefits.

Boletus Edulis is also very common and highly appreciated in the kitchen for its softness and sweetness, which evokes the flavor of hazelnuts.

They are also delicious grilled but it is recommended not to add fresh garlic because it burns, but rather to use a Garlic seasoning like the one from La Chinata.

And among many of the edible mushrooms, it is worth mentioning the Truffle, one of the most exquisite mushrooms. It is an underground fungus that develops in association with the roots of certain trees or shrubs called truffle species and are found below the surface of the soil at a depth of approximately 20 centimeters.

Its culinary value is so appreciated thanks to its deep aroma and great flavor, capable of enhancing the flavor of any dish with a little truffle, especially with risotto dishes, fresh pasta with Truffle Carpaccio or one La Chinata Truffle Sauce, to accompany meats such as sirloin and cheeks and with vegetables.
