About Shiitake (Lentinula edodes)
Shiitakes are one of the most popular gourmet mushrooms harvested and eaten around the world. They have a deep, woodsy flavor, and we love them sautéed with garlic and butter or added to soups for a bit of texture and umami. Their stems can also be added to stocks to extract all of the mushroom's flavor. Shiitakes are also considered medicinal--they contain high levels of vitamin D12 as well polysaccharides that boost immune function and limit inflammation.
About Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus)
Lion's Mane (often reffered to as the Pom Pom Mushroom) are a favorite among vegan and vegetarian foodies in search of a seafood alternative. These unique mushrooms look and taste like crab meat, and they absorb sauces and flavors exceptionally well. Lion's Mane is also at the center of new research into the neurological benefits of mushroom consumption; two families of compounds called hericenones and erinacines have been shown to improve neurological function in healthy individuals and may help improve symptoms for those with neurological damage from brain or spinal injury and dementia.
About Oysters (Pleurotus var.)
Oyster mushrooms are the workhorse of the gourmet mushroom world--versatile, mild, with a bit more flavor and texture than the button mushroom. Different strains taste earthy, fresh, fruity--feel free to ask for specific recommendations. We like to roast our Oyster mushrooms on baking sheets with olive oil and sea salt until crispy and brown. You may also experiment adding Oyster mushrooms to stir-fries, to soups, or to any recipes in need of a mild, meaty texture.
