Mushrooms picking, a heirloom across Lebanese villages

Mushroom picking, an heirloom across Lebanese villages

Lebanon is known for its rich bio-diversity. One often forgotten hidden gem are wild mushrooms. Those delicious yet dangerous fungi fruits used to make up our ancestors' main substitute for meat during wintertime. Tony explains: in his village, every family picks a different type of mushroom, and although during the stroll he spots other wild mushrooms, due to poisonous types, he doesn't even risk touching other than the one he knows and is sure about.

Do as Tony does: Do not touch, pick, eat, or let your pet eat wild mushrooms if you're not accompanied by an expert.
