ABOUT

In Japan, it is said that for each pine mushroom aka “matsutake” consumed you add another year to your life. If this is true it’s soothing to know us fungiphiles will be in good company on this planet for some time to come. The texture of the pine mushroom is firm, its aroma has notes of cinnamon, fir needles, pine pitch, and a briny salty sea breeze. They are well suited to be powdered, infused into broths, pureed into soups and slowly cooked in rich braised dishes or casseroles.

PINE MUSHROOM MISO SOUP

One of the best ways to enjoy pine mushrooms is to infuse them into a broth. In this case into a miso broth. Nothing more fitting than combining one of Japan’s most beloved broths with a most beloved ingredient. A Japanese proverb says “for every pine mushroom you eat you add one year to your life”
