Mushrooms are a vegetable typical of woods and meadows, but they can be also cultivated. A mushroom is generally made of a cylindrical stem, straight or rounded, and a hat with a diameter that can vary from 2 to 30 cm.

The varieties of mushrooms are extremely numerous; many, unfortunately, are also poisonous, so it is advisable not to collect mushrooms unless you have a deep knowledge of the different species and their edibility.

Gastronomically speaking, there are highly prized mushrooms, such as porcino or boleto and ovolo, and others that are not as valuable but just as good. However, they all lend themselves to various preparations like sautéed or tomato-flavored mushrooms, grilled or fried ones but there also many courses with mushrooms and sauces.
