About

Letinula edodes, or the Shiitake mushroom, is native to East Asia and commonly found growing on decaying logs. With umbrella-shaped caps and an earthy smoky flavor, Shiitakes offer the same versatility as a common button mushroom, but with a much richer flavor and higher nutritional value. This commonly cultivated mushroom is considered medicinal, with studies showing potential of antibacterial, antiviral, and even anticancer properties.
