Matsutake is also called pine mushroom. It is usually found at the foot of pine tree, very expensive mushroom because of its rarity. Price varies depending on the area of production.

Recently, my mom said worm-eaten ones sold at discounted prices are really good and affordable, so I tried them out. Yes! They are truly great. They are worth to try!!!



BTW, I usually get Matsutake at Takashimaya (高島屋) department store in Futakotamagawa (二子玉川) ;)

Matsutake Gohan (Pine Mushroom Rice)

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
2 cups uncooked Japanese rice (short-grain rice)
100g (3.5oz.) Matsutake mushrooms
A
* 1 tsp. Sake
* 1 tsp. soy sauce
B
* 400ml water
* 10cm/4inch-square Kombu (kelp)
C
* 1 tbsp. Sake
* 2 tsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 1 tsp. soy sauce
* 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:
1. Wash rice and leave for about 30 minutes. If you are using pre-washed rice (musenmai) you don't have to wash it.
2. Clean each Kombu with moistened towel. Soak in 400ml water for 30 minutes.
3. Clean each Matsutake mushrooms with moistened towel if necessary, shave the hard part of the stems if necessary, slice and season with A.
4. Place the rice and C in a pot, add Kombu Dashi (2) to the appropriate level indicated in the pot. Then place the seasoned Matsutake (3) on top of the rice.
5. Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover and press the button to start.
6. When it's done, toss the rice lightly using a rice paddle, then serve.

You can garnish with chopped Mitsuba (Japanese wild parsley) if you like.

I cooked the Matsutake in the rice cooker, but you can also grill it then mix in the cooked rice later. It is up to you~
