When the autumn comes, it's mushroom picking time in Catalonia. Go out into the countryside and — amid the magnificent autumn leaves — you'll see cars parked at the roadsides and hordes of day trippers whacking the undergrowth with walking sticks (to the ecology-conscious, a definite no-no!) in search of bolets.

You'll find more information on (which helpfully includes emergency phone numbers, just in case you fail to indentify a tricholoma equestre as being highly poisonous).

Come to think of it, you might just stick to the rovellons you can pick up in the market — or play safe and find yourself a good restaurant for a blow-out botifarra amb rovellons lunch.
