Their relatively mild, but sweet and earthy flavour, and the fact that they are excellent value
for money make white or (stronger) chestnut mushrooms staples in any shopping trolley. Perhaps
we don’t give mushrooms enough credit for their versatility beyond risottos or garlicky mushrooms
on toast; they combine beautifully with Asian flavours of ginger, soy, star anise, chilli and the like.
Think brothy noodle soups and vegetable stir-fries. Italian and Middle Eastern flavours are just
as welcome. In particular, cumin, cinnamon and cardamom enhance subtle mushrooms.
