Cordyceps Hot Cocoa 🍄🍫 on a rainy day! Has anyone tried cultivating Cordyceps Militaris?! These mushrooms are packed with potent and highly energizing polysaccharides, and are gaining devotees in the world of professional athletics and training. There’s a ton of interest in Cordy’s these days, and innovations in home cultivation have enabled more people to grow them – which is good news because their wild relative “Cordyceps Sinensis” goes for over $5,000 a pound in the alpine regions of Southern China, Bhutan and Tibet where it grows – I’ve even heard of it going for $70,000 a pound for particularly desirable specimens. Cordyceps Militaris have many of the same polysaccharides and nutritional value of their wild cousins, but are infinitely more accessible and affordable. Share some Cordy photos or stories in the comments here if you have any! See MoreSee Less

Who’s cooking with fungi this weekend?! What’re you making? This mushroom medley includes Lions Mane (def my favorite mushroom to cook with), Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms from Eric Mueller. The Lions Mane went into ceviche and tacos, the Shiitake and Oysters went into a breakfast scramble. Cheers to Fungi Friday and Mush Love! See MoreSee Less

It’s rainy season in Mexico, which means that wild mushrooms are starting to pop up in the local markets – I found some Lobster Mushrooms (Hypomyces lactifluorum) this week! Fun Fact: The Lobster mushroom, contrary to its common name, is not a mushroom, but rather a parasitic ascomycete fungus that grows on certain species of mushroom — I believe this one started out as a Milk Cap (genera Lactarius and Lactifluus).The texture is like perfectly grilled chicken breast, and the flavor is deeply smoky and earthy – a real treat!! I made some tacos with them (and flying ants too!) – link in comments. See MoreSee Less
