Jamie in the forrest with Gennaro?

I've always loved watching this guy because he seems so natural in the kitchen. He just seems to cook and season by feel. This weekend, however, it was a little over the top. He and Gennaro, bundled up for cold weather, and took a walk into the forrest to pick and cook wild mushrooms. They actually cooked in the forest over a fire, and came prepared with seasoning, cooking equipment and pre-made toast. There was even a scene in which Gennaro had Jamie propped up on his shoulders so that Jamie could reach a fungus growing high on the bark of a tree, presumably to be the star ingredient in his risotto.

Anyone else find this a little peculiar? Let's face it, I can't walk into the nearby woods to pick my food, unless I am planning on eating landscape specimens. It was fun to watch, I will admit, but a little weird for me. Maybe a little more focus on easily obtainable ingredients?
