Mushrooms

Portobello mushrooms

The portobello is the mature cremino (plural: cremini) mushroom, which in turn is simply a brown variant of the commonly cultivated white mushroom. The overgrown mushrooms were often discarded until some forgotten marketing genius started selling them under the name "Portobello" some time in the '80s. Since then, the heirs to that genius have begun marketing "Baby Portobello" mushrooms at a price significantly higher than their identical cremino twins. Don't be fooled. When given the option, buy the cremini rather than the so-called baby portobellos.

antly higher than their identical cremino twins. Don't be fooled. When given the option, buy the cremini rather than the so-called baby portobellos.
