RI Mushroom Co., Cardoons & Seville Sour Oranges

Of Note-

We just got in our first shipment of mushrooms from the Rhode Island Mushroom Company, and these are some of the nicest cultivated mushrooms we’ve seen.  Of note,  the chef’s mix is now in a 3 # box, featuring blue oysters, yellow oysters, piopinnos, shiitakes, and maitakes.  We’re also bringing in beautiful cases of maitake, pioppino, portabello, shiitake, king oyster, and gray oyster mushrooms from these guys.  Because we are getting them direct and local, that means that it’s a fresher, fuller mushroom at a lower price.

Flying off the shelves: cavallo spigarello, the leafy green that’s related to broccoli, kale, and rapini.  This braising or wilting green could probably also work in one of those rubbed kale salads, but we think it’s best slightly charred with some garlic, chili and anchovy.  This could be a great companion to a meaty winter braise or a big juicy pile of greens under a piece of perfectly cooked meaty fish.

86: Finger limes, fresh red currants, satsumas (will be substituting paige mandarins), most heirloom apples & squash

If you haven’t checked out our new catalog lately, we’ve added a  “Bin Ends section, where you can get some very sharp pricing on some great items we are planning to discontinue in order to make room for new things.  We are adding new items all the time, so check back regularly.  Of note: a significant currently available on aged Mahon cheese.  When young, this cheese is soft, but when aged, it’s hard like Parmesan.  This is the latter variety.   This would be a cool way to do a luxe mac and cheese by way of Spain with a cheese that tastes a bit like parm, and a bit like aged gouda.
