Our next event at the farm is a Dinner on November 21.
We will feature Pine Mushrooms in all their glory. The Pine is also called the Matsutake and is related to the famed Matsutake of Japan (same aroma and flavour with a fatter shape).
The pine is renown as a culinary and medicinal mushroom with reputed positive effects on the circulatory system. The texture is firm with a spicy, mild radish odor. They are definitely one of my favourite mushrooms and I sometimes dream of the intoxicating aroma when they are not abundant. Once you have smelled the mushroom in the forest you’ll know why we love to hunt for pine mushrooms.
Our menu will feature dishes that highlight the aroma and texture of these wonderful mushrooms. Please join us for the next dinner event.
