“Please Stand Tall & Welcome The Amazing Team From”Smithy Mushrooms
For many years we have worked extremely closely with the team at Smithy mushrooms to inspire our minds around things Fungi
It's so very easy to take something for granted like the trusty mushroom when in fact it's ultra complex to grow and takes much science/skill to get the flavour profile to be the best on the planet.
John and team at Smithy Mushrooms are true masters of their art of growing mushrooms and based in their facility in Ormskirk they nurture and grow some most radical flavours and textures.
John is a total mushroom addicted chap and he loves a fungi challenge, during our trip over to Smithy on Tuesday he got so excited around king oyster we had to all stop for a sit down as it was simply far too exciting to take in any more info around such a meaty mushroom.
Daily harvested by hand from the growing rooms the team are true masters and deserve much praise. Next time you dig deep into the mixed trays containing shitake, enoki, oyster and other delights just keep this thought in your mind.
Shitake takes 100 days to germinate then 3 days to grow John and team produce 53 tonnes of shitake a week how much an of a challenge must that be and how outstanding that must be to see ???
