Description 

 

The traditional "black mushroom" of Oriental cuisine.

The meaty flesh of the Shiitake has a full-bodied, distinctively woodsy flavor. Originally wild-harvested in Japan and Korea, Shiitakes are now cultivated around the world.

Many health benefits have been attributed to eating Shiitake mushrooms, including strengthening the immune system. Use Shiitakes for a hearty mushroom soup or in savory sauces for meat and poultry. Excellent in risottos, omelettes, and quiche.

Recipes

Red Cooked Pork with Chestnuts
Red cooking refers to a classic slow braising Chinese cooking technique. Red cooking requires slow simmering for several hours with the ingredients being cooked mostly submerged in the fragrant spiced cooking liquid. Red cooked pork usually includes other ingredients, here with whole garlic cloves, shiitake mushrooms and chestnuts.

Pork & Chestnut Wontons
Chestnuts have been treasured as a delicacy throughout Asia for centuries. Their sweet, gently nutty taste and toothsome texture pair beautifully with the mild flavor of tender pork, as evidenced by the many traditional recipes which use both ingredients.

Wontons are surprisingly easy to make, especially if you use ready-made wonton wrappers, which can be found in most grocery stores these days. Don't worry about making them perfectly on the first try; in cooking, you can almost always eat your mistakes! Rest assured, after two or three, you'll be turning them out like an old pro.

These savory wontons can also be added to chicken stock for a deliciously satisfying dumpling soup, or fried until golden brown for a crisp & crunchy treat. Wontons also freeze exceptionally well, so you can make a big batch and save some for later - if you have any leftovers!

Sautéed Spinach with Dried Shiitakes and Shallots

Chef David's Miso Soup
Along with sushi and tempura, Miso soup is probably among the most widely known Japanese dishes in the world. In Japan, most people eat this nourishing soup at least once a day. The ingredients in miso soup, or Misoshiru, can vary according to the taste of the individual, but Japanese custom dictates that there be a variety of contrasting colors, flavors and textures: some ingredients should float and some should sink.

A Japanese chef friend once confided that the secret of his flavorful miso soup was in his blend of both white and red miso paste. The red miso, he said, gave it a little extra flavor.
