    Default Mushrooms.... PIC's

    Awhile back there was a discussion on mushrooms, and IIRC, it was
    'cshenk' who suggested I try some Shimeji mushrooms.

    Well, after seeing them in Asian supermarkets/shops all over th place in
    Sydney, I finally found some awhile back...... in a supermarket in an
    Asian 'part of town' :-)

    Plus I found some other varieties, so tried them all. Shimeji, enoki,
    portabella, and plain old button mushies.

    Sauteed them together (the Enoki went in last, raw) and had with a char
    grilled eye fillet/tenderloin.

    Now I just need to find a place that sells the 'wood ear' fughi..... I
    *LOVE* that sliced finely in chinese food!!

    Looks ambitious. ;-d

    I like wood ears but can not eat them. They are one of the few foods
    I've found that I am truly allergic to rather than just sensitive to.
    Wheat makes me ill but I don't think it's actually a true allergy.

    Woodear mushrooms make my face break out in hives. It's itchy and rather
    unsightly. <sigh>

    So you're gluten free eating as well?

    Bugger :-(

    You could always take an anti-histamine before you eat them?? ;-)

    You haven't been eating mushrooms on a regular basis before? Is it
    you, or are mushrooms less commonplace/popular in Australia than
    everywhere else (or at least in Europe, Asia and North America)?

    Try good quality porcini/cepes and/or morels. You'll be amazed.
    Chanterelles are also very nice.
