Matsutake literally means "pine mushroom." Revered throughout Asia, this traditional delicacy is a favorite of Japanese chefs, whose preparations are well-suited to its strong, spicy-clean fragrance and taste.

The unique flavor of fresh matsutake mushrooms, (Tricholoma magnivelare),  is owed to the rare conditions under which it grows - under the base of pine trees between 20 to 60 years old. Their magnificently spicy aroma, reminiscent of pine and cinnamon, enhances wild mushroom dishes and makes 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.

Matsutake mushrooms are available September - January

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.
