Japanese TV Crew Shoots "Mushroom Hunt" in Grevena

Utterly impressed by the flavors of mushrooms and the various activities developed relating to their exploitation in Grevena, the Fuji Channel crew shot pictures and videos from a local tavern serving the earthly delicacies, the nearby shops selling goods made of mushrooms, and the Museum in Lavda.
Fuji Channel is one of the biggest private broadcasting channels in Japan, and is currently in Greece shooting for its new project. “When the crew members found out about the mushroom-related activities developed in Grevena, they decided to go there and take a look for themselves” said ANA-MPA mushroom expert and teacher Mr. George Konstantinidis.
The visit of the Japanese TV crew was a unique opportunity to go out for a “mushroom hunt” and search for “troufa” (an underground mushroom) with the help of specially trained dogs.
The Japanese were amazed by the local hospitality and the tastes they tried in the mushroom-tavern of the town. They even tried some mushroom-beer for a change. “This type of beer is served with all our plates” pointed out Mr. Theodoros Karayiannis, owner of the tavern and member of the Mushroom Friends Association of Western Macedonia.
This is not the first time a foreign TV crew visits Grevena in order to shoot for their documentary films on mushrooms. A few months ago a British crew had travelled to the northern city aiming at capturing the “troufa hunt”.
