Pholiota nameko is a small yellow-brown mushroom with a gelatinous texture. This characteristic makes them perfect for certain fried dishes and traditional Japanese soups.

They have a very mild taste and aroma, so they should not be combined with very strong tasting ingredients because their flavour would be hidden. It is a great mushroom for risottos and fowl stews or as a main ingredient for soups and creams. One of its main uses is in miso soup.

It should be borne in mind that they will give any dish a viscous texture and that the required cooking time to do so is quite long.  Many people use it more for their texture than their flavour.
