This weekend i was lucky enought to find in one of my favorite places for eating delicatesen in Madrid the queen of mushrooms. This was reserved only for the Caesars at Rome, due to this name.

Just eating it sliced (even at carpaccio) with a bit of egg with an intense red wine was a great pleasure, unlucky is getting cold so probably wont be more of it till next year.

Mmmmm, this sounds delicious and the picture that you posted definitely adds to it!  This is a nice addition to the Food Community.  I've never had amanita caesarea, but now I want to try it.

By the way, I edited the name and added a wiki to the right so that Lunchers can find your review more easily and learn more about what you are reviewing ;)

Wiki

Amanita caesarea, commonly known in English as Caesar's Mushroom, is a highly regarded edible mushroom in the genus Amanita, native to southern Europe and North Africa. It has a distinctive orange cap, yellow gills and stem. Similar orange-capped species occur in North America and India. It was known to and valued by the Ancient Romans, who called it Boletus, a name now applied to a very different type of fungus.
