    Additional Information

    These are the same exotic mushrooms that top chefs order from us daily, but they are packaged for the convenience of the home cook in a one-pound size. Our certified-organic mushrooms are cultivated on a natural substrate of corn husks and oak chips to provide pristine fungi for discerning cooks.

    The variety pack offers a taste of four different mushrooms, which can be cooked together, or sorted and used individually. While we sometimes substitute Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms, the mix usually includes: Trumpet Royale, White Beech, Hon-shemeji and Velvet Pioppini (See the Tips tab for more details). You can use these gorgeous mushrooms anywhere you need that umami flavor that is so specific to our fungi friends.

    Our scrupulous buyers source mushrooms from around the world, following their seasons as they grow in forests, fields and mountains in different countries and continents.

    Though we have more access to wild mushrooms than ever before, largely because of advanced communications and air travel, there is no better way to collect wild mushrooms than by hand. It is time-consuming and demands great expertise and dedication. This is a process as old as time. There is something miraculous about eating a mushroom that has been discovered in the woods and picked by hand.

    In our quest to supply the best mushrooms to the most demanding and discerning chefs, we work with expert foragers around the world who collect mushrooms that are immediately sorted and packed and then flown to our warehouse each day.

    And for exotic varieties that can be cultivated, we work with an organic mushroom farm in California. They produce clean, fresh and flavorful mushrooms that are grown in optimum conditions on a natural substrate of corn husks and oak chips to provide pristine fungi.

    The Trumpet Royale is a meaty mushroom with a thick edible stem (there’s no waste), and it’s a favorite among chefs for its nutty taste and firm texture that holds up well in any preparation. They are large enough to slice in half, rub with duck fat and place directly on a hot grill.

    The versatile White Beech is a lovely, petite mushroom with nickel-sized cap and a delicate shellfish flavor. Crisp and crunchy in texture, with an almond-like scent, the White Beech is small enough to be tossed whole into a stir-fry and works well with olive oil,duck fat, garlic or tomatoes.

    The Brown Hon-shemeji mushroom is much like the White Beech in size and flavor, but is darker in color. The taste of Hon-shemiji is slightly bolder that White Beech, so it pairs well with strong flavors, like Asian sauces or red wine and demi-glace reduction.

    Velvet Pioppini are doubtless named for the dark brown caps that appear to be made of lustrous velvet. They have a robust flavor, and the appealing brown caps are perched on long, elegant, tan-colored stems. A natural for pastas, red meats and even game, they have a unique forest-floor type of flavor.
