Description

The elusive morel mushroom is world-renowned for its distinctive flavour and spongy, meaty texture. Morels add a deep, nutty flavour to a wide range of dishes including pastas, casseroles, pizzas, soups, sauces, pâtés and many more.

These mushrooms fruit for a very short time each year and are extremely difficult to find. They are sometimes successfully cultivated in gardens but it takes a lot of expertise and patience as they grow slowly and require very specific conditions. Their light weight and the elusiveness of these special mushrooms makes them an expensive but very worthwhile option.

For information on foraging, check out the Foraging category in our knowledge portal.

Mushroom Network’s morels are wild-foraged in the Western Cape.
