They may be flat, but they’re full of robust flavour. The Flat Mushroom is the head of the white Mushroom family, being the most mature of its Button and Cup Mushroom mates. It leaves an earthy, robust impression on the palette, complemented by a rich, meaty density. Delicious when stuffed, barbecued or served grilled in a salad.
A robust flavour with a dense, meaty texture, you’ll find Flat Mushrooms similar to field mushrooms.
