Each basket comes with an assortment of some of the worlds finest gourmet mushrooms along with recipes and wine pairing suggestions. The basket will arrive filled with an assortment of different specialty mushrooms. Depending on availability it will include Trumpet Royale, Forest Nameko, Brown Clamshell, Velvet Pioppini, Nebrodini Bianco, or Alba Clamshell and comes with suggestions for storage and use. You'll find out which mushrooms need to be used right away and which ones will last up to a week or more. These mushrooms are organically grown on hardwood oak in climate controlled environments. These mushrooms are no longer wild but far from tame.

Mushrooms are gaining in popularity because they offer a wide range of colors and textures while sharing a common ability to enhance the flavor of any dish. This savory, flavor-boosting quality is referred to by the Japanese term umami, which translates roughly as "deliciousness." Specialty mushrooms are particularly welcome in vegetarian dishes because they impart deeper flavor notes and varieties like the Trumpet Royale provide a firm, meaty texture. Mushrooms are also very good for you, providing vitamins B and D and hard to find micro-nutrients like selenium. Mushrooms are also known to help support a healthy immune system.

If you are passionate about great truffle oil, we know that you will love a bottle of Sulpizio Italian Truffle Oil. Like Herbal Advantage, Sulpizio Tartufi is a small company dedicated to quality. Both their Black Summer Truffle Oil and White Truffle Oil are made with an extra virgin olive oil base. Remember, truffle oil is a condiment, not a cooking oil. A few drops added to a dish just before serving are enough to provide the instantly recognizable aroma of truffle. Try it with pasta, soups or mashed potatoes.

A perfect gift for a friend or yourself. Prices include free overnight delivery. Baskets may be delivered Tuesday through Friday only. No delivery Monday, Saturday, Sunday or major holidays. No Delivery to PO Boxes. Because of the perishable nature of this product it might be wise to alert the recipient that "something very special will be coming."

Artisan Truffle Oils

Castello do Magrano Truffle oil is an aromatic condiment, not a cooking oil. Made with a base of extra virgin olive oil, a few drops to a half-teaspoon per serving is enough to season your dish. Highly recommended for risotto, mashed potatoes, eggs and soups.

Alba Clamshell

Character and Pairing: Crunchy texture. White, one inch cap. Mild seafood flavor. AKA shiro buna-shimeji or hon-shimeji. Excellent with fish and shellfish, Savignon Blanc, olive oil, garlic, parsley, tarragon, red bell pepper, tomato, citrus juices.

Notes: Some chefs like to blanch the Alba Clamshell in salted water for three minutes. Drain and cool, then proceed with chosen recipe.

Brown Clamshell

Character and Pairing: Crunchy texture. Lightly marbled, tan/mocha one inch cap. Mild seafood flavor, AKA buna-shimeji or hon-shimeji. Similar to Alba Clamshell, but flavor can be shifted to pair with light red wines. Also pairs with Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. Seafood, grilled veal, almond, goat cheese, thyme.

Notes: Single mushrooms great for garnish. Small clusters can be roasted in very hot oven to concentrate flavors. May be blanched like Alba prior to cooking.

Forest Nameko

Character and Pairing: Glossy caps. Rich amber color. Texture similar to shitake, but softer with edible stem. Slightly fruity forest flavor. Stunning accent of amber color. Pair with Pinot Noir. Cashew nut, shallot, beef, dark green vegetables.

Notes: Glossy cap is a natural protein gel. Roasted or grilled, it forms a glaze. Sauteed, it adds a slight additional body to sauces and risotto.

Velvet Pioppini

Character and Pairing: Intense flavor. Dark, chocolate color caps. Cream colored stems. Caps silky, stem texture similar to asparagus. Traditional in pasta dishes. Grilled red meats, veal and game, garlic, oregano. Pair with medium to full-bodied reds.

Notes: A center-of-the-plate celebrity. Robust flavor with earthy notes.

Nebrodini Bianco

Character and Pairing: A relative of the Trumpet Royale with an ivory white color and a beautiful bell shape. Dense and meaty but when cooked the texture is similar to very tender abalone. Sweet and rich flavor. Pair with any well-structured white wine, shellfish, fish, light meat fowl, egg dishes, herbs, green onion.

Notes: Also great on its own, grilled or oven roasted. Excellent for passed hors d'oeuvres. Our newest variety.

Trumpet Royal

Grilled with olive oil, pair with Syrah. With meats, Pinot Noir or Bordeaux. Likes cream, walnut, parmesan, rosemary, basalmic vinegar.

Notes: Cap and stem have same texture and flavor. Halve and toss with oil to grill. Cut stem into scallops to emphasize meatiness. Holds shape and texture when sliced or minced.

Maitake Frondosa

Character and Pairing: Rich flavor and aroma. Variegated brown, gray and cream colored. Light brown 'leafy' bracts grow from a center core. Also known as Hen-of-the-Woods. Rich flavor is excellent with pasta and green vegetables, cheese, roast meats and fowl, flavorful oil-rich fish like salmon. Red wine or full whites.

Notes: Wonderful for appetizers. A flavor that needs very little enhancement to take the spotlight.
