Hen of the Woods is a mushroom variety that traditionally grows wild in clusters at the base of trees. These magnificent specimens are grown by the Marshalls in their ‘Mushroom Room’ at Dawlish Warren, Devon, so that non-foraging experts can experience their outstanding flavour! Earthy, sweet, and distinctly truffle-like... In the words of Riverford chef Kirsty, ‘they’re bloody good.’


Hen of the Woods mushrooms are best cooked and served simply, to allow their excellent texture and truffle-like flavour to speak for themselves. Slice and pan fry, then serve on toast or use to finish a pasta or risotto.


Keep in the fridge and eat within a few days.

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.
