Description 

 

Hen of the Woods mushrooms (grifola frondosa) are mushrooms that are cultivated near stumps of oaks or other hardwoods. Their darkly tipped silvery fronds folded over one another resemble the feathers of a hen protecting its nest.

 

The Japanese, call it Maitake, the dancing mushroom. The Hen of the Woods mushrooms are cultivated for their excellent culinary properties.

 

Hen of the Woods are excellent in custards, soups, sautees, and fried in teriyakis and as sides to other dishes.

 

 

Recipes

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.

Chawan Mushi with Maitake Mushrooms
Chawan Mushi is a popular Japanese egg custard dish. In fact special China cups are made for preparing and serving the custard. The cups come with lids that are used to keep the custard warm for a while after it is served. In our recipe we have substituted ramekins for the traditional cups.

Wild Rice Baked with Almonds & Mushrooms
The legendary flavor of wild rice is paired with the mild, nutty-flavored Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms. A real novelty to look at, they're delicious when sautéed and combined with rice. The "feathery" parts of the mushroom crisp up wonderfully.

Veal Rolls with Wild Mushrooms, Lemon and Garlic
The delicate flavor and fine texture of the veal is only enhanced by the nutty flavor of the chanterelles. The tomato sauce adds a nice counterpoint to this rustic dish..
