Fall Sneaks Into the Kitchen: Mushroom Quiz

October 9, 2009


Executive Chef Mikey Stern snapped this shot inside the Michael’s Santa Monica kitchen.  Can you identify these mushrooms?

  • The golden little parasol-shaped mushrooms are chanterelles.
  • The orange ones that look like cooked, shelled lobster meat are lobster mushrooms.
  • The clusters are hen of the woods.
  • The big caps are trumpet mushrooms.

These mushrooms will appear throughout the Fall menu, in omelettes, risotto, roast chicken, and nightly specials on both coasts.
