Kea Hon-Shimeji
Distinguished by its mild shellfish flavor. Its quarter-size capes with 2-3” white stems retain a crunchy texture. We recommend a hot sauté to coax the most flavor out of this mushroom.

Alii Oyster
This mushroom has a wonderful nutty flavor, a resilient firm texture and an amazing shelf life. It can be sautéed, grilled, braised, stewed or broiled.

It’s earthy fragrance and meaty texture enhances a wide variety of dishes since the results are beautiful whether they are sautéed, broiled, baked, grilled or stir fried.
