We picked up some Cinnamon Cap mushrooms from them at Lansdowne on Sunday. We stored them in a paper bag in a corner of the kitchen for dinner on Monday but when we pulled them out at cooking time, the stems were furry so we tossed them :(

I guess these are the kinds of things you eat as soon as you get home.

I picked up some King Oyster (Eryngii) mushrooms from this vendor at the Farmers Market at Lansdowne Park. The guy working the booth was very helpful and suggested I try these - they were new to me. I sliced them and fried them in some butter with sliced garlic scapes - They were the best mushrooms I have ever tasted - bar none. Appearance and texture was almost like scallops. I will happily track these down again.
