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.

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! 😀
