Hen of the Woods Mushrooms


Recommended Posts

Arlington is the Clarendon Courthouse market on Saturday mornings. Are the mushroom folks also there on Wednesdays?

I only know about the Saturday market.

Unfortunately, tomorrow will not be a good day to go looking for The Mushroom Stand in D.C. Better chance for Feriel's maitake this weekend.

FWIW Kevin won the Top Chef Challenge once for feeding maitake to Natalie Portman aka Celebrity Vegan. Roasted and accompanied by kale and winter squash, perhaps? Popular in Japan as virtual medicine, so I am told. Anti-carcinogenic, good for lowering cholesterol. Easy to mess up as a home cook because of the peculiar, rather dry texture. I've had best success roasting them with lots of fat in almost coral-like chambers.
