That reminds me of the story Maryanne Esposito told on her show one day.

She was in Italy and bought a large box of mushrooms to use in her class the next day. She put the box in her trunk and forgot all about them. They stayed there in the hot summer heat until the next day when she remembered them, as she was getting ready for her class. She went to the trunk of her car, and all she found was a box of fat worms that had eaten all her beautiful mushrooms.

+1 Me too Dawg! By the way, I like to use them in my quick and easy Asian soup. I'll post the recipe if you like.

Sounds great kades, I love mushroom soup and the Madeira wine will set it apart.

I remember that story, Addie! And someone from DC had an equally disappointing story, maybe with truffles? They were lovingly trudged back from Italy. Was it you, Kayelle?

Yup, sadly it was me Dawg I brought back a small fortune of dried Porcini mushrooms infested with Italian weevils complete with Italian mustaches singing La Dolce Vita.
