I found my first Matsutake today! I was soaking wet from rain, but I found one! Tricholoma magnivelare, matsutake, are stocky/squat, white mushrooms with a little brown or grey fibrils on their cap. They have white spores, a cottony veil, and their stipe/stem comes to a pointed at the bottom. Additionally, they have a very unique smell. They smell spicy like radishes, or as David Aurora famously said many years ago: "Red hots and dirty socks." The best way to eat matsutake is to float paper thin slices on top of piping hot broth soup.... So, I did.
