General tips on cooking with mushrooms

You can treat shii-take mushrooms in the same way as champignons or oyster mushrooms, for example as a mushroom omelette, fried in butter or breaded. It is easy to preserve fresh mushrooms by allowing them to dry in the air. When you come to use them later, you will find that the mushroom taste is even stronger.

Dried shii-take mushrooms are above all good for use in sauces. Put them in water before use until they get soft again.
