Hello Chef,
As always I hope you enjoyed your weekend; I was at Victoria Park’s Field Day festival to celebrate my friend’s birthday.  Amazing.  In case you haven’t heard of them, check out Jamie XX’s collaboration with Gill Scott Heron on the album, We’re New Here and James Blake’s new album, James Blake.  Fantastic, it will make your ears happy. 
Now here is something to make your tummy happy:  
Wild Mushrooms & Truffles

Girolles (Poland) with a signifant price drop and Scottish Girolle
Trompettes (Poland) in excellent condition
Chanterelle (France)
Pied de Mouton (France)  
Cep (Poland)

This week’s Wild Mushroom mix will consist of:
