Review by Debbie Mazo

 

Mushroom Lovers.com 
With the ready availability of an enormous variety of fresh and dried versions, mushrooms have become key ingredients in contemporary dining. Formerly rare commodities served only to emperors and kings, today's mushroom enthusiast has a lot to talk about. If you like your mushrooms farm fresh, Mushroom Lovers.com offers the best of both worlds: online shopping and the top ways to prepare these rustic treasures.

Launched by Oakshire Mushroom Farm Inc., a premier mushroom grower in the U.S., Mushroom Lovers.com lets shoppers deal directly with mushroom producers for a fresh variety of mushrooms shipped the same day the mushrooms are harvested. With a well-stocked e-store, you can browse the aisles at Mushroom Lovers.com for everything from mushroom gift baskets to dried mushrooms to mushroom growing kits.

Mushroom Lovers.comCaring for and handling mushrooms needn't be reserved for only the most knowledgeable chefs. With a quick reference guide to the most popular types, Mushroom Lovers.com offers inside tips on handling and preparing portobello, crimini, shitake, oyster, and enoki varieties. If you love shitakes, browse this section for tips on using this rich, full-bodied mushroom. Best if cooked, the shitake mushroom adds a meaty flavor and texture to stir-fries, pastas, soups, entrees, and side dishes.

In the Recipe Library, you'll discover that mushrooms have come a long way from garnishing your slice of pizza. Recipes here range from selections for appetizers to entrees to breakfast dishes. If you're planning a dinner party, greet your guests with Open-Faced Quesadillas with Mushrooms and Greens topped with thinly sliced crimini or shiitake mushroom caps. For entrees with a new twist, try the Crab Imperial Stuffed Portobello seasoned lightly with paprika and freshly chopped parsley and chives or the Mushroom and Sausage Casserole served with egg noodles.

To see how mushrooms are grown and then packaged, take the Virtual Mushroom Farm Tour. You can also sign up for a free newsletter with a Recipe of the Month, coupons, Specials of the Month, and more. From the farm to your doorstep, Mushroom Lovers.com delivers the ingredients for dinner and a fresh crop of recipes to help prepare them.
