Matsutake Sake

  • Author: Mino de Angelis


“An elegant drink to watch the moon by while composing haiku and eating delicious food in small amounts,” is how Mino de Angelis describes matsutake sake, a homemade aperitif popular among the mushroom crowd.

Simply warm up some sake, add some matsutake mushrooms, and let steep for ½ hour, covered. You don’t want to evaporate the sake; you’re just extracting the matsutake essence.
