I’ve only found T. caligatum under oak here in the northeast and have tried cooking it 3 times from collections from 3 different areas. It was unpleasant each time. It’s my understanding, from what I’ve read, that the species found under conifers in the west is good.
contains species with a very pleasant taste, and others with a disgusting taste. I have come across one of each (matsutake and dulciolens), but I don’t know what the true caligatum is. In Europe, it is supposed to be a southern species.
Could be Tricholoma caligatum ?
Matsutake grows around here apparently (I’ve never found it before though), and I distinctly remember the smell being unusual… earthy, pleasant.
Looks like Tricholoma matsutake. What does it smell like?
