The shiitake is one of the most cultivated mushrooms in the world and originates from Japan. This mushroom has a spicy flavour. It is a versatile mushroom, available all year round, and is cultivated in Spain. 

Taste and application

The shiitake is a protein-rich mushroom and has a juicy and aromatic flesh. The taste is particularly spicy and nutty. Due to its origin, the mushroom is very suitable for Asian dishes. It is rich in vitamins B and C and proteins and therefore very healthy. Are you looking for inspiration for using shiitake in dishes? Then you can go here.
