You'll feel like you're discovering mushrooms for the very first time when you experience the bold, smokey, woodsy flavor of these shiitakes. Sauté them, grill them, dip them in your favorite sauce and snack on them raw.
Your store-bought mushrooms are likely already past-their-prime and harvested on a mass scale that doesn't allow for the specific attention to detail that's needed to ensure that each mushroom is harvested at its peak flavor. Dull, bland, and aged mushrooms are commonplace at the grocery store, which ends up giving these magic umami ingredients a bad reputation for poor flavor and texture.
These mushrooms are grown hyper-locally in Brooklyn, just a short drive away from us! That means that their freshness and flavor is unparalleled because there's no transit time or mystery about how long they've been sitting on the shelf. You might be shocked at the difference it can make to eat mushrooms with a firm, yet buoyant texture that are so welcoming, you might just pop them into your mouth and eat them raw before you get around to cooking them.
We had a dinner party and ended up supplementing our Local Roots share with some mushrooms from the co-op. There was just no question in the difference in taste. Local Roots' mushrooms tasted 100 times better!
