A taste comparison to other species would only make sense if the preparation of the mushrooms was identical. Even then, different chiefs would make a difference so the only valid comparison might be for raw uncooked mushrooms all at approximately the same developmental stage.
But the short answer is that I am not a cook, and my partner won’t cook or eat any Amanitas that I bring to her so I have almost no other experience for comparison. So I envy your culinary experience!
I can’t stand it! I am so jealous!
How did they stack up to other amanitas that you have eaten?
And they are wonderful!
did you eat them? I am jealous!
I’ve been collaborating in genetic studies of section Caesareae. In the Mediterranean region, at the moment, we’re only seeing one group of highly similar sequences for collections of Caesareae capable of ejecting spores—-Amanita caesarea. If you include secotioid fungi, then there is also A. torrendii.
