Market Produce Supplement

As reliable as ever, here is the seasonal produce list from the guys & gals at Wild Harvest in London’s Covent Garden.

Mushrooms & Truffles

My apologies for the miscommunication regarding Ceps last week; we were expecting them in, but due to hot weather conditions in South Africa we did not receive our delivery.  Unfortunately it is still too hot, so we will not be receiving them this week.  We will update you as and when they come in.

We will be moving to Portugal this week for all Girolle, yellow-legged and grey-legged Chanterelle and Pied de Mouton.  Girolles are cleaner and smaller than their American cousins, as are the pied de mouton.  Chanterelle is in good shape with a bright yellow stem, a little larger than the French variety, but will stand up well on the plate.  Trompette de la Mort is coming in from America as the European season comes to an end.  We are now working with cultivated French grey oysters, which are smaller and neater than the English variety.

Perigord and Italian Black Winter truffles are both in excellent condition with a regular, even size, a great nose and marbling and dark colouring.
