Lentinula edodes / Flower-top mushroom / Sawtooth oak mushroom / Black forest mushroom / Black mushroom / Golden oak mushroom / Oakwood mushroom
Beautifully ornate and looking like hand carved wood hardware these flower top shiitake caps are one of the most striking mushrooms around. Their flavor is as floral as their appearance while maintaining their meaty flavor. The perfect mushroom when plating matters as much as the taste.
Dearest culinary enthusiast,
We know that for you food isn’t just about sustenance. It’s about art, presentation, and personal aesthetics. Like Spice Jungle, the flower top shiitake cap mushroom understands this. It wants to play an active role by grilling up beautifully and being glazed with kumquat marmalade. It wants to be a bold, savory coin with floral base notes in your cold soba noodle salad. The flower top shiitake wishes to bob in your soup and enthrall the date you’re trying to impress.
And you will impress. The flower top shiitake knows this. Of course, so do you.
All the best.
