Gourmet Mushrooms FAQs

  • Is it safe to eat exotic mushrooms?

    Commercially grown exotic mushrooms you purchase in a store or are served in a restaurant are safe to eat. However, you should never eat wild or foraged mushrooms without the guidance of a trained mycologist or mushroom expert. There are thousands of inedible and poisonous varieties that often resemble non-poisonous mushrooms.

  • How are gourmet mushrooms commonly used?

    Although you may think of fine dining with gourmet meals as the perfect place to use gourmet mushrooms, they are used commonly in many types of foods. In fact, gourmet mushroom varieties work well in recipes ranging from breakfast to cocktails — and yes, mushroom cocktails are a thing!

    With flavor profiles ranging from mild to robust and woodsy, gourmet mushrooms can be added to most recipes. Check out our recipe library for delicious mushroom inspiration. You’ll soon discover that many gourmet mushrooms can be used interchangeably, but the more familiar you are with the individual flavors, the more likely you are to consider flavor profiles before making a swap.

  • How should I wash exotic mushrooms?

    To wash or not to wash? That is the question.

    Specialty mushrooms don’t always come with a perfect little cap. Shiitakes and King Trumpets — varieties that have a neat cap — can be wiped down with a damp paper towel like you would for White or Portabella mushrooms. Oysters, Maitakes, and Beech mushrooms are more delicate and don’t respond well to that method. Instead, these exotic mushrooms should be rinsed briefly under running water and then patted dry with a paper towel.

    Remember, wait until it’s time to cook the mushrooms before you rinse and dry them. Doing so earlier contributes to the aging process.
