The Magic of Mushrooms

Spotlight on The Flavorful FungiGriffith Magic of Mushrooms

What’s not to love about flavorful, functional fungi? In addition to their hearty texture and umami-rich taste, many mushroom varieties are packed with minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Grocery stores stock mushroom-based wellness teas, coffees and elixirs—often made with less common types such as cordyceps and lion’s mane—that are purported to boost energy and immune function. On the restaurant side, chefs incorporate meaty morel, trumpet, oyster, maitake and cremini mushrooms into creative dishes to offer a punch of earthy flavor or serve as a satisfying substitute for beef or seafood. Mushroom mania has truly become a global phenomenon.
