Having fun with fungi

Our Journey

If you think that fungi aren’t a part of artisan food, then you’d be wrong.  However, we’re not talking about the kind that gets all furry in the back of your fridge.  Instead, we’ve found some of the best portabello mushrooms you could imagine and Chef Andrew turned them into a masterpiece!  Ever since then, we’ve been having fun with fungi!

Chef Andrew is already becoming well-known for his outstanding dishes.  That includes his incorporation of some of our favorite fungi into the amazing dishes he’s been serving.  The portabello mushrooms used in our Fungi de Bernini dish are absolutely delicious!  This dish has received some really great feedback recently and we’re happy with the way it has been received.  After all, anyone who is willing to order a dish with the word fungi in the name deserves some respect.

For those who are looking to eat healthier this year, you’ll be happy to know that these dishes are great for your new lifestyle!  Portabello mushrooms are not only low in sodium, saturated fat, and cholesterol, but they also contain a laundry list of vitamins and minerals, as listed below.

  • Thiamin
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Vitamin B6
  • Folate
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Choline
  • Betaine

Mushrooms are a great addition to many meals

There are dozens of meals that either have mushrooms as a base or have them as an option for more depth of flavor.  For example, what would Green Bean Casserole be without the Cream of Mushroom soup?  Mushroom and Swiss Burgers are another fast favorite with many and involve what?  Mushrooms!  Not only are these delicious fungi a great source of vitamins, minerals, and necessary acids, but they taste amazing as well.

For those who enjoy salad, why not slice some Button mushrooms to add to the mix?  Again, this addition adds plenty of health benefits to your meal.  No matter how you slice it, mealtime is simply a lot more fun with fungi.  Stop in to The Intracoastal Kitchen while you’re in West Palm Beach and see just how delicious some of these dishes can be.
