    Mushrooms are a one time meal and that’s why they are not as common as other alternatives like meat or vegetables.

    Mushrooms are a delicacy but not a staple in Kenya. I’ve heard that the require a specialised eye to identify which ones are poisonous and that has led many people to wait for an expert before they can indulge. Unlike other foods like cereals or greens which don’t need any specialised knowledge, they are reserved for once in a while servings. For example, I don’t know of any mushroom hotel neither have I ever come across them on a menu. That says a lot.

    First things first, I LOOOOOOVE mushrooms! Back in Kenya about 8 or more years ago, a nurse I know in Nyandarua County was a mushroom farmer. I kept pestering my mom, “When is Mama Njeri harvesting the mushrooms?” So basically we were among the first customers she sold her mushrooms to! We bought them white button mushrooms fresh, and cooked them fresh! I fried them with little oil and my dad, who’s lived with reflux problems most of his life, enjoyed the mushrooms and that was a-mazing! Another zero acid food for my dad? Yaaay!

    We often enjoyed fried fresh mushrooms and they had some taste like fish in the aftertaste. I have seen brown-colored mushrooms 🍄 and they taste awesome. I believe they are called Shitake mushrooms. I LOOOOVE how they taste. I add them to my fried eggs along with cheese…. I can’t explain the juicy, delicious feeling in my mouth when I take a bite!
    I can’t say that I’ve had a load of dried mushrooms, probably only on Debonairs pizza if it still exists! I LOOOOOOVED their chicken and mushroom pizza!

    The only down side with mushrooms is that they are pretty expensive. Also Mama Njeri complained of the powdery stuff, like mushroom spores, she said she had started to get some allergic respiratory reactions, so eventually she quit her mushroom farming business.

    My family has been yearning for mushrooms ever since, but where to find them!?
