Mushroom Recipes

This recipe page is dedicated to mushrooms, fungus, fungi and all things mushrooms. I am a huge mushroom fan. In the kitchen, I love experimenting with all the different varieties of edible mushrooms. Morels, Chanterelle, Hedgehog, Oyster, Hen of the Wood or Maitake, Black Trumpet, Shiitake, Portobello (a grown up version of a Crimini), Enoki, Reshi, Porcini, Wood Ear, White Button, and the list goes on.  Out in the field, I enjoy hunting | foraging for mushrooms, while learning from mycologists, understanding what details to look for, if it’s edible or not, where and how they grow.

April 16th is Day of the Mushroom. When cooking with beer, many beer styles are improved by using mushrooms. most mushrooms have umami, that fifth food flavor (Sour, Sweet, Salty, Bitter). This Umami food sensation makes everything taste better. Mushrooms not only have umami, but an incredible amount of in protein, vitamin D, and a great source of vitamin B12, mushrooms are an excellent ingredient addition to a recipe if you are vegetarian or vegan.

In my quest to learning more about mushrooms, I recently watched a great documentary on mushrooms, called Fantastic Fungi. Below is the trailer for this film. It is very informative, creative with time-lapse photography and offers a unique perspective into a world we know very little about.
