Many Eastern cultures feature edible mushrooms in their foods as a main ingredient. At Jewels of the Forest, our goal is to promote them as a staple food in the American diet. Enhancing the flavor and nutritional content of your food is only the beginning.
Drawing on inspiration from Thai cuisine, our team at Jewels of the Forest has discovered the best spice blends to bring out the deep flavors of a diverse range of edible fungi. The meaty textures and flavors of mushrooms make them very versatile. Mushrooms are one of the few non-animal sources of umami. Umami is the chemical that makes food taste “savory”. They are a great pairing for meat and a great substitute for it as well. Each variety of mushroom has a unique flavor profile that takes time to understand and fully harness.
