Flavour Profile

Yellow Oyster Mushrooms offer a palate that's distinctly similar to cashew nuts—light, fresh, and subtly complex. When tossed into a pan with a splash of oil, they adopt a very delicate texture. These gourmet fungi are particularly popular in high-end oriental cooking but are versatile enough to complement a steak dinner or stand alone as a sumptuous dish.
