The Loire Valley’s other gastronomical delight

Posted on Thursday, August 21st, 2008 at 10:06 pm CET

On Tuesday we visited the Musee du Champignon outside Saumur, France. In the Saumur region there are many troglodyte buildings cut into the soft rock valley walls; the region produces more mushrooms than any other in France. We had a tour of the mushroom caves which included exotic specimens as well as the more common types of mushrooms grown and sold in France.
