For exotic mushrooms that can be cultivated, we work with a certified-organic mushroom farm in Michigan. 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. They are meticulous in their process, continually monitoring and improving the growing conditions to improve characteristics such as size, flavor and presentation.
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-shimeji mushroom is much like the White Beech in size and flavor, but is darker in color. The taste of Hon-shimeji is slightly bolder that White Beech, so it pairs well with strong flavors, like Asian sauces or red wine and demi-glace reduction.
A coveted prize of mushroom foragers around the world, the maitake grows in a distinctive cluster of leaf-like, flattened caps that look a bit like the feathers of a hen. With firm, crunchy texture and fruity, earthy flavor, the hen of the woods mushroom is a favorite with chefs.
