A Perfect Porcino (Penny Bun).

Ceps, or porcinos, or penny buns, are the most delicious variety of edible mushrooms in our parts (Boletus edulis). Maggots and slugs appreciate them too, but here in Norman Bocage it is not rare to find a perfectly clean cep. Here is one I've just sliced for a quick fry (they don't need cooking at all, certainly not overcooking).

Read about ceps on Wikipedia here.
