2 Gold Star Great Taste Award Winner 2016

Shittake Mushrooms are native to East Asia. they have a meaty texture and go well with beef or as an alternative to meat for vegetarians. They have a smokey, peppery almost garlic like taste and they are sensational in sauces, soups, casseroles or in a simple omelette. Our Shiitake Mushrooms were described by the Great Taste judges as “… superb and meaty, with fresh nutty, true umami richness and fabulous length of flavour – completely true to the characteristics of a shiitake mushroom. A dish of these mushrooms would be a treat for the taste buds, head and shoulders over many others…”. 

Full of natures delicious flavour and goodness with vitamins, fibre and the pleasant savoury umami taste for low salt meals. Shiitake have been recognised as a very good non animal food source of iron and have been used in Chinese medicine for over 6,000 years.
