Cooking Tips: After opening, store any unused mushrooms in the box they came in or in a brown paper bag. Keeping the mushrooms in clusters will keep them fresher longer. Washing our cultivated mushrooms is not necessary and will change the texture. Simply trim the bottoms and they are ready for use in your favorite recipes. Maitake mushrooms have rich umami flavor that complements roasted meats and poultry, Asian dishes, dark leafy greens, and grains. We like to roast them with avocado oil and flake salt, or sauté them in miso-butter.
D'Artagnan offers a variety of wild and cultivated fresh mushrooms and truffles year round. For wild mushrooms, we partner with foragers and follow the seasons around the world. In addition, expert cultivators grow organic mushrooms for us in pristine and optimal conditions. We also preserve the flavors of the season with our dried mushroom offerings.
Our truffles are foraged seasonally in France and Italy, and when those are done we source farmed truffles from Australia, which lengthens the season for these fragrant delicacies.
