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.
For a flavourful broth, boil a few shiitake and their soaking water with some kombu sea vegetable for 15 minutes, then season with shoyu or tamari and mirin to taste.
