Shitake Mushrooms

Shiitake MushroomsShitake Mushrooms are plentiful this time of year in at Piedmont Grocery. They hold a special place in the culinary traditions of Asia, and our dinner tables. According to Chinese legend, shitake mushrooms are symbolic of growing fortunes. This makes them a key ingredient in New Years dishes.

Their rich, earthy flavor and delicate texture complement makes them one of the most cultivated and delicious edible mushrooms. We eat them in recipes that range from stir-fry to risotto to pizza. We love these exotic mushrooms for their distinctive taste, but they have a long list of health benefits that can’t be ignored.
