Mushroom Yuzu Pasta

Happy National Mushroom day! 

Did you know, today 10/15 is the day to appreciate mushrooms and enjoy them! 

While being familiar with the canned one, I’ve never seen fresh white or cremini mushroom until I came to the US. Until then, I loved eating shiitake mushroom or shimeji mushroom, and I was taught that I have to be very careful when cooking them because some of them are poisonous and even if they are edible, they must be fully cooked to be eaten safely.

Can you guess how I was surprised to see American people put raw mushroom in their salad? Now I get used to eating raw mushrooms, but I still prefer grilled one because the flavor boosts up to full.  

Today’s recipe is my favorite way to enjoy mushrooms.

Mmm, mushroom’s earthy flavor with a hint of tangy yuzu makes the whole dish stunning! 

By the way, I’ve heard European people go mushroom hunting in summer to autumn, but I wonder how they know the mushroom is edible. I was taught to never touch any mushrooms in mountains because lots of them are poisonous. If they have a class, I’d like to take one! 😀

  3. One of my fondest childhood memories is going mushroom hunting out in the woods, right after the rain. We kids would pick wildflowers while my father picked the mushrooms. So good when sauteed in real butter!

      OMG that’s one of my dreams!👀✨🍄 How do you guys learn if it’s edible or not? I sometimes saw wild mushrooms in school or park, but we never knew or even adults didn’t😂

      Freshly caught wild mushroom sautéed in butter? Oh no, you made me hungry right after I had dinner🤤🍄(by the way, I’d say this mushroom emoji is only edible to Mario, not to me😂)
