Buy premium shiitake mushrooms
Well known for their meaty texture and nutty flavour, shiitake mushrooms are a Japanese staple. They are best with soups, stir fries and meat or cooked alongside garlic, pak choi, or broccoli with a dash of vegetable oil or sesame oil to bring out their earthy flavour.
If you love mushrooms, you'll enjoy our premium 100% forest grown shiitake from Sugimoto, naturally cultivated on kunigi (Japanese Sweet Sap Oak) logs in Kyushu, a Southern Island of Japan known for producing the best tasting and textured shiitake.
The Sugimoto Family has 3 generations of experience offering premium forest grown shiitake, grown fresh using 100% natural practices and no pesticides or artificial chemicals. Their innovative drying process improves the quality and taste. Grown naturally, the broth that is left over – or dashi – has a very deep, rich flavour and makes a superb umami-boosting ingredient in many dishes.
As well as dried Donko & Koshin shiitake, we also offer dried shiitake mushroom powder which is a great addition for enhancing the flavour of dishes without adding a mushroom taste.
