Disregard psychoactive and videogame mushrooms. What's your favorite edible mushroom?

I'm partial to Pleurotus eryngii (also known as king trumpet mushroom, French horn mushroom, king oyster mushroom, boletus of the steppes, trumpet royale). Might just be that I've not had it that often yet, and I really dig new flavors - texture-wise, it's a bit on the chewy-side of things, but offers a unique tangy flavor in return. Can't quite describe it, you've got to try it for yourselves.

Mushrooms are amongst my favorite foods. They have replaced meat for the most parts in my daily diet. My preference for lowheat cooking is a great fit for shrooms - I love when they retain most of their liquids. Like biting into a fluffy cloud of heaven. Yummy!

I don't eat anything that digests its food outside of itself.

So, mushrooms, flies, etc...

The Trumpet Royale

That looks like the lobbed off penis of a plant.

Anyway, if there was a mushroom made out of candy that didn't taste at all like a mushroom that would be my favorite, edible mushroom.

Mushrooms are pretty divisive. I've never enjoyed eating them, and avoid them if I can, but if they're on a pizza or in a soup or something I'll still go ahead and chow down.

I don't think I've ever had anything like in that picture, though. Just the common stuff.

There hasn't been a mushroom I haven't liked, though to be fair if it goes well with garlic and/or onions, I'd eat it.

Shitaki Mushrooms, express my love for them when Cowboy Bebop based an episode on them.

I'm not a fan of mushrooms at all, but I can tolerate the portabella ones on sandwiches or something.

So these?

They're pretty good.

They all taste the same to me, I vote all edible mushrooms.

Psilocybin?!

Any sort! Button, shitake, you name it. The only way I won't eat a mushroom is raw, because it's kind of tasteless like that.

I absolutely hate mushrooms. The smell alone makes me sick.

I don't really know a lot of english names for different mushrooms but I like most of those I've eaten well enough. A certain common kind I really like with some dishes and I would even eat those raw from time to time.

Am I the only one that thinks the OP's mushroom looks like a condom?

I do not care for mushrooms.

I like mushrooms more or less.

However, I don't eat them often enough to have a preference for one or another.

Girolle mushrooms are my favourite! Lovely delicate flavour.

Shiitake all day

mushrooms taste like that feeling of having to puke. But they're excellent to use to make sauces for beef.
