Out on a walk in the Peak District the weekend before last we came across a lovely bracket of Oyster Mushrooms, another fungi that grows all year round. Very popular in Chinese cookery of course, they have a firm texture and particular taste that lends itself well to all sorts of other dishes. We added them to soups & stir-fries and they were delicious with crispy bacon and the works for Sunday brunch the next day.
There’s a lovely Mediterranean Oyster Mushrooms recipe on our website for you to try, with chilli and garlic, which makes a great dish to add to a selection of tapas. Perfect with a good dry sherry or a crisp white wine.
