It’s fall. Everything tastes better. But if you live in the Northwest, Matsutake is the king of the fall flavors. Its aroma is just mesmerizing and makes you so happy and grateful. I am not a mushroom hunter but luckily have some wonderful (and generous) friends that delivered hand-picked local matsutake to my house!! If you don’t have such friends, you can check out any Asian grocery stores nearby. I am pretty sure they have matsutake available now but hurry! The mushrooms will not last long.
Here is one of the matsutake recipes you can try and enjoy within an hour.
