Description 

 

Take one look at a cluster of Hen of the Woods and you'll immediately know how this mushroom got its name.

 

Hen of the Woods (Grifola frondosa) is an unusual fungus that grows at the base of tree trunks, and can be extremely large. Its many caps are joined together and a large specimen can provide a feast for many people. Also known as Poule de Bois, Pied-de-griffon, Laubporling, and Grifo.

 

Visually stunning like a feathery tan ball, Hen of the Woods mushrooms have a fresh earthy taste like a walk in the Autumn woods. Hen of the Woods retains its flavor and texture, even after cooking. Also known as "maitake" in Japan, this delicious (and healthful) mushroom is suitable for all cooking methods.

Savory Mushroom and Gruyère Strata
This layered casserole, perfect for an easy, make-ahead brunch, but classy and substantial enough for a satisfying dinner, features savory cheeses, eggs, and a whole lot of hearty mushroom flavor.

Think of strata as nothing more than a savory bread pudding. It's easy to make and can even be prepared the night before and baked just before you're ready to serve it.

Stratas aren't as well known as other classic casseroles. Many people have never even heard of them. But stratas combine all the classic elements of breakfast - eggs, milk, bread and cheese - and you can easily add or change ingredients around to suit the contents of your pantry or your appetite!

Hen of the Woods (Maitake) Gravy
Look at a cluster of Hen of the Woods and you'll immediately know how this mushroom got its name. Covered with multiple, floppy, fingerlike projections this delectable mushroom looks like a big pile of feathers.

This "hen" has a mild flavor, but with deep, woodsy undertones. Sautéed in butter, it is absolutely superb. The ends crisp up wonderfully and this is one mushroom that doesn't lose its great texture - or flavor - when cooked.
