faux poulette


T
he chicken mushroom is also known as the sulphur mushroom because of its color - but why is it known as the chicken mushroom? This mushroom has the texture of moist chicken when its young and tender, and it gets to be like an old stringy bird as it gets older.



When young this mushroom is so choice I should probably be keeping it a secret. While it is orange and yellow in color and it somewhat resembles a lobster mushroom it is not.



It is easy to spot, easy to identify and easy to prepare and there is hardly any of that earthy funkiness that you associate with mushrooms, its hard to describe the soft and moist and delicate flavor. Its time to find these now so keep an eye out. I saute the pieces in a little olive oil and butter and then salt and pepper to finish, they would be so good with pasta or anything you want to kick up with a truly secret ingredient.

It really tastes like chicken? How neat, I've got to look for this mushroom to try!

mushrooms scare me unless I buy them in a store .

TavoLini said...

Wow, that is awesome. I wonder if they grow in the South?

By the way, I am a horrid person and chose to spend the last of our pesos on beer instead of a foodie gift. You're getting a Georgia gift as opposed to Colombia...unless you want a scarf or earrings. They are both quite beautiful--let me know.

Melody said...

Interesting! Who'da thunk it? Where do you find these less than everyday ingredients?

Jenn said...

About a month or so ago, I had an old friend of mine tell me about these! He goes mushroom hunting every year and asked if I'd ever tried any of these...well, NO, I haven't! He didn't actually give me any, because we don't live close...but seeing them....OH MY! They look & sound awesome :D

The Diva on a Diet said...

How very cool indeed! Thanks for making the introductions, doggy, its a new one on me for sure and I'm eager to try it.

It does remind me of the Lobster mushroom! Looks terrific!

The Blonde Duck said...

I always learn new things here.

Joan Nova said...

A very interesting variety and new to me. I was wondering what you did with it and then I got the last sentence...and pasta was the suggestion. That's been my motto for years...when in doubt, eat pasta!

Chef Fresco said...

Woah that thing is crazy looking! I'm intrigued though, I love mushrooms!
