Mushrooms Are Amazing

Andrew Weil - maitake

Collecting maitake mushrooms with naturalist Alan Muskat near Biltmore estate in Asheville, NC. I always love a good mushroom hunt!


…while harvesting delicious maitake and blewits near the Biltmore estate in North Carolina, we found this perfect example of the Destroying Angel…


A nice patch of blewits (Lepista nuda).


Blewits up close, the name comes from “Blue Hats” due to their colorful tops.


A bounty of maitake mushrooms – also known as hen of the woods.


Here’s the fruit of our mushroom-hunting day near the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC.


Sauteing the blewit mushrooms (also called blue hats) brings out their flavor. Just add a little olive oil and some seasoning and you are ready to go.


We put our bounty of blewits, along with potato and onion, into this Spanish omelette.
