While perhaps best associated with hearty autumnal dishes, chanterelles actually begin to come into season in July, and make the perfect ingredient for transitional cooking when the days begin to cool. With a distinct golden hue and feathery texture, they are a joyful addition to many meals. Possessing a peppery, fruity flavour with a subtle earthiness, they bring an unrivalled depth of flavour to dishes.
This recipe from Kricket's Will Bowlby utilises the mushrooms in a unique way, harnessing their distinct flavour profile in combination with Indian spices, sweet peas and the subtly sour green mango. It's the perfect dish to see you through these cool, early autumn days.
