    Watching the chefs forage for fresh mushrooms is so funny. It’s great to see just how fresh the food is – and their meal looks delicious! My other favorite part of this is hearing their favorite part of the day πŸ™‚

    I can’t believe that Rocco yelling, “Sauro!” worked! And the ‘shache, wow!
    The “Mushroom Keepers” were the most adorable couple I’ve ever seen in my life, they looked like they were right out of a fairy tale. And, I totally want to go eat at Aoristo now, what a gorgeous restaurant.

    I liked the part in the beginning where Rocco tells the group that they can buy some underwear. Unexpected and made me laugh.

    The mushroom people and Sauro were adorable too.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    My Favorite Part was the drive up through the mountains to get to the mushroom hunters. It was beautiful and I could almost feel the cold with the snow-topped mountains.

    It was incredible to see how they go into a forest and just search for mushrooms then gently scrape off the spores to keep the process so natural! Such fun videos!

    My favorite part was when they got out of the car and Dan was talking about how he would shift the gears and hit Rocco in the knees!

    I loved seeing the forest where they were hunting the wild mushrooms, too!

    “He’s been working on this for a long time I could tell.”
    The stache says it all.
    and the fact that you can buy underwear in the open market!
    Italy sounds so intriguing!
