I never thought of mushrooms as a gift. My amazingly thoughtful friend got me mushrooms for an early Christmas present... Inside were a variety of mushrooms from Mycopia (Gourmet Mushrooms Inc.) and a small square candy box that said "smell before you eat."
The variety of mushrooms contained trumpet royale, velvet pioppini, and brown clamshell mushrooms.
I took the small chocolate truffle box out and took a whiff. BLACK TRUFFLES.
I had to make breakfast with it, but don't worry, there's more!
