A really magical morning deep in the woods with Magdalena Kohlmetz of Loßberg, Schwarztwald. She supplies these natural little wonders to Hotel Traube Tonbach who were kind enough to make the introduction and whip me down there in their Merc. In fact they were all overwhelmingly generous enough to let me keep the booty and take it back to the hotel for our own superb ‘shroom feast. Extraordinary. In fact it really was the gift* that kept on giving and we feasted for days. Who needs the meat eh?
*Gift in German actually means poison. Isn’t that a beautiful strangeness?
