The edible wild mushrooms you can find depend on where you live. They add woodsy and earthy flavors, but cultivated cremini and white buttons are delicious here too. Well-stocked supermarkets often have cultivated "wild" varieties like hen of the woods, matsutake, yellowfoot and hedgehog--all great in this recipe.
Tip: Made from dehydrated and ground mushrooms, dried mushroom powder is rich in umami-boosting glutamates. Find various mushroom varieties (like shiitake) in well-stocked grocery stores. Stir into soups and stews or sprinkle on meat.
