Description 

 

Matsutake means 'pine mushroom.' Thought to be an aphrodisiac by the Japanese, this tradtional delicacy is a favorite of Japanese chefs, whose preparations are well-suited to its strong, spicy-clean fragrance and taste. The unique flavor of the matsutake is owed to the rare conditions under which it grows - under the base of pine trees between 20 to 60 years old and never in the same place twice. Their magnificently spicy aroma, similar to cinnamon, enhances wild mushroom dishes and make great stuffed mushrooms. They are high in protein, low in fat and rich in vitamins B1, B2, and D, and are believed to have many healthful properties.

 

Recipes

Chawan Mushi with Matsutake Mushrooms
To most Americans, the word "custard" usually means sweet, eggy and often bland desserts. The traditional Japanese favorite, called "Chawan Mushi" is something quite different. This is a delicate, savory egg custard that may contain any number of different ingredients, mostly depending on the individual cooks who make it.

This dish is so popular that special lidded chawan mushi cups are readily available in most Asian markets. If you don't already have these special cups, there's no need to buy them just for this dish. Just use any heatproof tea or coffee cups, regular custard cups or ramekins.

We've modified this dish slightly to accommodate Western tastes by adding an extra egg for a firmer, custardy texture. If you prefer the traditional lighter, soupier version, just use three eggs instead of four.

Matsutake Mushroom Chowder
The firm texture of matsutake mushrooms is a superb substitute for clams in this take on the classic New England style chowder. In fact, you might just come to prefer this version over the “traditional” kind!

Matsutake Veloute
Matsutake: From the depth of the pine forest, the voice of the hawk - Koya.

This is a mushroom with a unique scent. It is so distinctive, in fact, that it is sometimes used to identify the mushroom. It is fragrant, spicy and clean-smelling - so much so that it is particularly treasured by Japanese chefs. The word "matsutake" means "pine mushroom."
