Mushrooms in the spotlight

With the change in season restaurants in L’Eixample such as El Principal, also add autumn greens to their menus, and warm or lukewarm dishes such as soups and purees start to regain their appeal. Salads, however, remain ever present, with the addition of ingredients such as nuts, chestnuts and even mushrooms to make them all the more appetizing.
