Cry for Mushroom Suggestions
Our local Harmon's sells a wide variety of fancy fresh mushrooms and I really want to try them. When I cook with mushrooms I usually use cremini/baby bellas or shiitake, but the store often has enoki, blue foot, maitake, or oyster mushrooms (as well as various fancy dried types). Has anyone used these? What are they good in? I know enoki mushrooms are used in Japanese stuff but I don't know how. I usually use mushrooms in risotto or soup, or as burrito filler (sounds crazy but it really works), but I'd like to branch out. Ideas? Experiences?
