And for fun... some mushroom facts!
Brick Cap Mushroom (1): This species is sometimes considered edible but caution must be taken to avoid confusing it with similar-looking deadly species. The taste of a brick cap is mild to somewhat bitter. However, when cooked, brick caps have a nutty flavor. They are especially delicious when sauteed in olive oil.
Chanterelle (2): Many species emit a fruity aroma, reminiscent of apricots, and often have a mildly peppery taste (hence its German name, Pfifferling). The name chanterelle originates from the Greek kantharos meaning "tankard" or "cup"
Honey Mushroom (3): Honey fungus are regarded in Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Germany and other European countries as one of the best wild mushrooms. They are commonly ranked above morels and chanterelles and only the cep/porcini is more highly prized. However, honey fungus must be thoroughly cooked as they are mildly poisonous raw.
Amethyst Deceiver (4): This mushroom itself is edible, but can absorb arsenic from the soil. Because its bright amethyst coloration fades with age and weathering, it becomes difficult to identify, hence the common name "deceiver".
Parrot Toadstool (5): This toadstool is generally considered edible, but not worthwhile due to its small size and sliminess. Consumption of over 20 specimens in one sitting can cause gastrointestinal disorders.
Maitake Mushroom (6): This mushroom also known as hen-of-the-woods, maitake (舞茸, "dancing mushroom") in Japanese, ram's head or sheep's head. In Japan, the maitake can grow to more than 45 kilograms (100 pounds), earning this giant mushroom the title "king of mushrooms"
Oyster Mushroom (7): The oyster mushroom is a choice edible, and is a delicacy in Japanese, Korean and Chinese cuisine. It is frequently served on its own, in soups, stuffed, or in stir-fry recipes with soy sauce. Oyster mushrooms may be used in sauces, such as oyster sauce. The mushroom's taste has been described as mild with a slight odor similar to anise. Oyster mushrooms are used in the Czech and Slovak contemporary cuisine in soups and stews in a similar fashion to meat
Black Trumpet (8): It is also known as the black chanterelle, black trumpet, trompette de la mort (French), trombetta dei morti (Italian) or trumpet of the dead, djondjon (Haïtian). They look rather unattractive, but have a very good flavor. When dried their flavor acquires black truffle notes; in this form, it can be crumbled as a condiment.
