This blog of mine focuses on Japanese cooking.
Eringi are our (mine and my husband's) present favourite mushrooms. I say "present" because we have them so often (imported from Korea) that I am afraid we will get bored one day... On the other hand we have been buying them regularly for over a year and still consider them incredible.Your pasta looks luscious!
Sissi: I posted these photos partly because you said you liked eringi. Sorry to hear that it's expensive where you live. It's cheap here in Japan.
Thank you for thinking about me! They are quite expensive, but it's our petit zeitaku :-)
Hiroyuki: What are the greens in your lunch, spinach, mustard cabbage leaves? I can identify eringi, spaghetti, onions, fish roe. Looks very good, did you heat it or ate it cold?Sissi: Why do you buy eringi imported from korea? They grow these mushrooms in europe too. Not that expensive, because they can be cultivated in mushroom farms. They even sell the breed for mushroom home gardening. I always thought I would like to grow oyster mushrooms and eringi on a few bale of straw behind my garage. In germany this mushroom is called Kräuterseitling http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Datei:Kr%C3%A4uterseitling-1.jpg&filetimestamp=20100925203357
I love tarako spaghetti -- that looks delicious! I've never tried to make it with eringi though, only enokitake.
Sissi: Of course, I am thinking about you, Kiki, and others!Kiki: Boiled mizuna, I suppose.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MizunaI ate it cold, partly because the tarako as a topping was raw and microwaving it would have changed the texture of the tarako.YSC: I think buna shimeji is the most mushroom for this type of spaghetti, but I really am glad to know that you can get enoki where you live.
Kiki, in my city there is only one place where I can buy eringi (only because it sells food for restaurants and caterers), so I have no choice... On the other hand they are twice as expensive in Japanese shops! Maybe in bigger countries than Switzerland eringi is easily found... however i have never seen them in France, where I make most of my grocery shopping, but maybe the cities I go to are too small?).I suppose I can't cultivate eringi at home... (I have seen some "sets" to grow mushrooms, but never eringi) I have only a balcony where I grow herbs and no garden... If you consider exporting your eringi grown behind the house, let me know ;-)
Hiroyuki, talking about tarako, look what I have found (there might be a 30 sec. advertisement before):http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5i32w_kigurumi-tarako-tarako-tarako_music
Sissi: Thanks for the link. Yes, the famous Tarako song from Kewpie. I've never listened to the full version of the song!
It's very funny :-)
Sissi: In Europe I think they call eringi by trumpet mushrooms, or king trumpet mushrooms, or French horn mushrooms. You can also get them dried too!They must have them in France, I think... if they call them French horn mushrooms :)
