Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), derived from the Japanese ‘shii-take’ (Shii tree mushroom), is a mushroom that grows naturally on the wood of certain slow-growing trees. It has been traditionally cultivated on trunks for over 700 years in Japan and China, where traditional medicine attributes healing and invigorating properties to it.

Shiitake mushrooms have been all the rage for some time now, although fortunately not because they are a supposed superfood. Compared to other more common mushrooms – such as pleurotus ostreatus or ‘oyster mushrooms’, or Portobello mushrooms – shiitake mushrooms have a very intense flavour, and a somewhat firmer, perhaps less rubbery, texture than the aforementioned mushrooms.
