Different Types of Mushrooms UK

There are thousands of species of wild mushrooms in UK, each with its unique characteristics, flavours and edibility. While many wild mushrooms are safe to eat and enjoyed in culinary traditions around the world, it's crucial to note that some can be toxic or deadly. Here are descriptions of some well-known wild mushrooms you can eat:

  • Chanterelles: Also known as Girolle Mushrooms are recognised for their distinctive trumpet or funnel shape, chanterelles are prized for their fruity and peppery flavour. They vary in colour from yellow to orange and can be found in both coniferous and hardwood forests.
  • Morels: Morel mushrooms are known for their unique honeycomb appearance. They have a nutty and earthy flavour. Morels are typically found in spring, often in association with burnt or disturbed areas.
  • Porcini: Also known as cep or king bolete, porcini mushrooms have a thick stem and a broad cap. They have a robust flavour with nutty and meaty undertones. Porcini mushrooms are often found in association with coniferous and deciduous trees.
  • Oyster Mushrooms: Oyster mushrooms have a fan or oyster-shaped cap and a delicate, mild flavour. They come in various colours, including white, pink, yellow and blue. Oyster mushrooms are often found on decaying wood.
  • Lion's Mane: Lion's Mane mushrooms have a distinctive appearance with cascading white spines, resembling a lion's mane. They have a mild, seafood-like flavour and are gaining popularity in culinary circles.

Where to Buy Enoki Mushrooms UK?

Enoki mushrooms are a type of edible mushroom known for their long, slender stems and small, rounded caps. These mushrooms are commonly used in various Asian cuisines and have a mild, slightly fruity flavour and a crunchy texture. We currently sell both, Enoki Mushrooms and Golden Enoki Mushrooms on our website.

Fresh vs Dried Mushrooms

Although fresh mushrooms, whether wild or cultivated, offer a range of nutritional and health benefits, dried mushrooms last much longer without compromising on flavour or taste. We believe dried mushrooms should be a staple ingredient in every larder and our dried porcini, dried morels and exotic forest mushroom mix are all popular choices for their strong flavour and convenience. Simply toss them into your favourite soups, sauces or broths for an added depth of flavour. 

Most Expensive Mushrooms

Several types of mushrooms are considered among the most expensive due to their rarity, difficulty in cultivation and unique flavours. Here are some of the most expensive mushrooms:

  • White Truffle: White Truffles are often regarded as the most expensive mushrooms in the world. Found primarily in the forests of Italy, particularly in the Piedmont region, they grow underground in a symbiotic relationship with the roots of certain trees. White truffles have a strong, distinctive aroma and flavour that adds a luxurious touch to various dishes. The price of white truffles can vary significantly, reaching thousands of dollars per pound during the peak of the season.
  • Black Truffle: Black truffles, also known as Perigord truffles, are found in regions of France, Spain and Italy. They have a strong and earthy aroma, making them a prized culinary ingredient. Black truffles are typically shaved or grated over dishes such as pasta, salads and scrambled eggs. While not as expensive as white truffles, black truffles can still command a high price, especially during their peak season.
  • Matsutake Mushroom: Matsutake mushrooms are highly valued in Japanese cuisine and are found in Asia, North America and parts of Europe. They have a distinct spicy and aromatic flavour. Matsutake mushrooms are difficult to cultivate, which contributes to their high market value. Prices can vary, and certain varieties, such as the Japanese 'Ise' matsutake, can be particularly expensive.
  • Porcini Mushroom: Porcini mushrooms are widely appreciated for their rich, nutty flavour and meaty texture. They grow in various regions worldwide, including Europe, North America and Asia. While cultivated porcini mushrooms are available, wild-harvested specimens are often more highly prized and can command higher prices, especially in gourmet markets.
  • Chanterelle Mushroom: Chanterelle mushrooms are known for their golden-yellow colour and delicate, fruity flavour. Wild-harvested chanterelles, especially those foraged in specific regions, can be relatively expensive. The price may vary depending on factors such as the season, location and demand.

  1. Nutritious: Mushrooms are low in calories and high in nutrients, including fibre, vitamin D, potassium, selenium and several B vitamins.
  2. Antioxidant-rich: Many varieties of mushrooms are rich in antioxidants, which can help protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals.
  3. Immune-boosting: Some compounds found in mushrooms, such as beta-glucans, have been shown to enhance immune function.

  5. May support brain health: Some types of mushrooms contain compounds that may improve brain function and protect against age-related cognitive decline.
