You are like the king of brassica.
I love chawanmushi. it's fun to make too. i always use shiitake
I'll give that some thought, Rambo. Probably just missed the harvest stretch unless we end up pulling off more frames... trees already turning a bit here so we'll see what kind of season we have left.
Cool. Do you have different types of honey in production? Avocado, honey blossom, clover, etc..?
I can get all these insane Asian mushrooms of decent quality, but I don't really care much for them either way. Those eringi mushrooms that mgm is obsessed with (scoring and absorbing flavors into, that is) are so ubiquitous here that I hardly eat them, just pass over them on a plate most times. They don't really have much flavor. They're not bad if charcoal grilled and maybe spritzed with a little sudachi juice or something, but otherwise they're not that exciting to me.
eringi are probably the worst mushrooms out there, but the shape is nice, which is why I assume mgm likes them.
I, and I guess many Korean people, just like plain old champignons for K-BBQ actually - better places will give you a few peeled and stemmed ones on the meat tray and you kinda sit them off to the side, let them cook slowly. By the time the meat is done and eaten the mushroom caps will be completely filled with their own liquor, and you just eat the whole thing in one go. One of life's small pleasures.
Christ, I score a few mushrooms and you all erupt like Mount Vesuvius.
Matt, you're quite the asshole. Has this been brought to your attention?
Because I don't like eringi mushrooms?
No, because you pretend to help me, while ridiculing me at the same time. A good mentor, you sir, are not.
I have found eringi's have the profound ability to smell like rotting semen in leftovers or when not prepared well.
You've spent a lot of time around rotting semen, have you?
you working in an actual professional kitchen (or hell, even a crappy bistro) would be reality television gold.
