Just look at this.
The first chanterelle of the season. Can you believe it? It's July!
The earliest I've seen them before was in September.
I am a very happy person right now.
But I'll be even happier tomorrow when I saute them in butter and either, A: make a fromage blanc and chanterelle tart, or B: add some white wine and Jersey cream and spoon them over a seared hunk o' halibut. There's just so many choices....
