    Shiitake are one of the East’s most exotic and delicious foods, with a subtle woody taste that adds gourmet flair to almost any dish. Our Organic Shiitake Mushrooms (sometimes spelt shitake) are carefully grown, selected and dried to offer the full depth of flavour and aroma that is highly prized in both Eastern and Western cuisine. The variety used is characterised by large, well-developed caps, which makes them easy to reconstitute and use in everyday cooking. The word Shiitake means (shii - oak tree, take - mushroom) that have a long history of use.

Tasty Shrooms

I soak these for use in miso soup and add them to slow-cooked meals. Tasty and good for us. I would prefer a bulk-bag option at good value because all these small packets are not environmentally-friendly and they are unnecessary. Cost could come down too if everything wasn't be packaged so small. I accept that it is a bigger outlay though and others need smaller package options.
