Traditional Catalan basket to go mushroom picking. Made by the master in basketry Miquel Serra. You can't go mushroom picking without a basket like this :-)
Mushroom picking is a tradition deeply rooted in our country during autumn. It is a good excuse to gather with friends, enjoy nature, exercise…
People never tell where they found the mushrooms because next year they are sure to be back in the same place and pick them again. It’s a big secret!
You have to be careful since there are poisonous ones. They must be washed well to remove the earth, fried with olive oil, garlic and parsley and eaten as is... Bon profit!
This basket reminds us of that of Little Red Riding Hood. Be warned, wolf, it may be Little Red Riding Hood who will eat you... Luckily things have changed. Female power!
