Cantharellus cibarius (commonly chanterelle, chanterelle, chanterelle or, less common, garitula, earring, gallitula, galletta, chanterelle, gialleletta, giallarella, gaddiniedde) is one of the most known and appreciated mushrooms. It is excellent cooked in oil, parsley, garlic and chili pepper, alone or as a side dish.
It grows in summer-autumn, in the broad-leaved and coniferous woods, in numerous specimens arranged in circles or groups in the mossy soil.
It is often preserved in oil or in vinegar, also good fried. Undoubtedly one of the most popular mushrooms, in some countries they are even preferred to Penny Buns.
