Alex Lussi of Swiss mushroom producer Gotthard-Pilze picks a shiitake mushroom inside a former ammunition bunker of the Swiss Army near the town of Erstfeld, Switzerland August 29, 2015. In eleven former bunkers Gotthard-Pilze produces some 24 tons of shiitake mushrooms per year. With the threat of foreign invasion a thing of the past, thousands of military bunkers and fortresses in Switzerland have been put to commercial use, from hotels to data centres, museums to cheese factories. The Swiss army has sold most of these decommissioned strongholds, but about a thousand unused bunkers remain, many still disguised as houses and barns.

Fausto Di Vora grates some truffle on a dish in an Italian restaurant in central Budapest August 8, 2014. Given their strong flavour and fragrance, a pungent blend of moist earth and spices, these rugged black fungi, generally the size of a walnut or an apple, are mainly used as a condiment in pasta, seafood or meat dishes, but also in some desserts. Even seasoned chefs, like Di Vora, who cooks at a smart Italian restaurant in central Budapest, have a hard time defining the precise flavour of truffles. "It changes all the time, depending on whether it is a black or a white truffle, but it also varies by season," said Di Vora, who uses about 30-40 kg of truffle a year, some from Hungary.

San Francisco Mycological Society President Curt Haney displays some dried morel mushrooms at his home in San Francisco, California June 2, 2014. Despite a record ?flush,? or bloom, of the tasty, wild fungi, mushroom hunters are banned from the forest because officials believe that scorched, unstable tree trunks, eroded soil and logging operations after last August?s massive Rim Fire have made the area too dangerous. That means as much as $40 million in a bumper crop of morels ? ironically sparked by the same fire that is blocking hunters ? is rotting in the woods west of Yosemite Park. Photo taken June 2, 2014.

Around two hundred people, farmers and inhabitants who refuse to leave, occupy houses or expropriated land in the zoned ZAD (Deferred Development Zone) in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, that is slated for the Grand Ouest Airport (AGO). The residents of the ZAD, 1,600 hectares (3,954 acres), have formed some fifty living groups comprised of self-built homes, villages, farms and buildings that were saved from destruction, which have been renovated and are currently occupied by people who resist expulsion. Residents work in agricultural and horticultural projects, and also have collective spaces for baking bread, a pharmacy, sewing and bicycle repair. A demonstration to protest the construction of the new airport in this zone, some 30kms (19 miles) from Nantes and scheduled for 2017, will be held February 22, 2014 in Nantes.

A truffle is seen on a table in Alba, north-western Italy November 11, 2013. Located in the heart of the Langhe - the hilly southern area of Italy's northwestern Piedmont region - Alba is the country's capital of white truffles, a variety of the prized fungus which grows underground. Truffles are found two to eight inches (5-20cm) below the ground near the roots of trees. They give off an odour which lasts for a limited period of time and can be detected with the assistance of well-trained dogs and experienced hunters. Output of white truffles, which are not cultivated and only grow naturally in forests, has fallen in Italy over the past few years, largely because climate change has brought a damaging mix of drought and torrential rains.

Hofstetten brewery is offering beer lovers a trip back in time by reviving a 300-year-old recipe it found in the town archives. The brewery recreated the "Neuhauser Herrschafts Pier" from ingredients listed in an invoice for the local Neuhaus castle in 1720, when Austria was one of Europe's big powers. Using small crops of emmer and malting barley grown from ancient seed varieties agricultural historians had preserved, owner Peter Krammer was able to reproduce the mix of barley, wheat and hops that marked the brew made three centuries ago.

Central American farmers who produce some of the world's most sought-after coffee beans are grappling with the re-emergence of a merciless old foe: the tree-killing fungus roya spread by the wind. Aggressive outbreaks of the blight have hit Central America's major coffee-producing nations and Mexico, which are home to more than a fifth of the world's arabica coffee production. The pandemic risks decimating yields, threatening hundreds of thousands of livelihoods and export revenues in some of Latin America's poorest countries. Making matters worse, coffee prices have fallen by about half since a mid-2011 peak, leaving farmers to face a double-whammy of shrinking incomes on top of depressed output.

Black truffles (front), "Aromatic Cheeses Risotto" (top) and "Warm Lobster Salad" (right) prepared by Italian chef Umberto Bombana are displayed at his restaurant in Hong Kong February 10, 2012. Bombana's distinctive flair for refined, regional Italian cuisine has taken him around the world and gained his Hong Kong restaurant three Michelin stars last year, within just two years of opening. After more than a year of soul-searching following the closing of the restaurant where he previously worked, Bombana opened "8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA" in Hong Kong's glitzy Central district. The name is a salute to the Italian movie by Federico Fellini. Picture taken February 10, 2012. To match story -CHEFS/BOMBANA REUTERS/Andy Ho (CHINA - Tags: FOOD SOCIETY)

Japanese farmer Takakazu Anzai stands outside a greenhouse where he and his family produce shiitake mushrooms near Fukushima, northern Japan April 5, 2011. The Anzai family grows their mushrooms indoors, as a way to reduce the contact with high levels of airborne radiation produced by the Fukushima nuclear plant 60 kilometres (37 miles) away. The operator of Japan's nuclear power plant that has been crippled after an earthquake and tsunami, started paying "condolence money" on Tuesday to victims of the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl while it kept pouring radioactive water into the sea.
