Friday Food Foto – Fried Baby Eryngii from Skool


I am not a big french fry girl, I will get them with a burger or a steak or mussels, but usually eat one or two and let my dining companion finish the rest!  I do like sweet potato fries though from time to time.  But I think I finally found a “fry” I can get on board with.  Eryngii fries from Skool in San Francisco.

These fried baby Eryngii mushrooms are so meaty that they actually taste like eating little bits of fried chicken.  And you know how I feel about fried chicken!

These mushrooms are fairly hard to find, so I feel blessed to have had a chance to experience them.

  1. I’ve never heard of Eryngii mushrooms, but I like oyster mushrooms and all other kinds. Have to see if I can find some.

  2. That looks yummy!

  3. These sound delicious! One of the things I love about traveling is trying regional and national foods 🙂

  4. Christina Kelbel says:

    Never heard of them and there are not many foods that I have not heard of. Not a mushroom fan though, love the flavor but hate the texture.

  5. I’ve never heard of that type of mushroom. I must find it! Since I’m a seafood eater, not a meat-eater (but I used to be years ago), I’m always on the hunt for things that are meatless. I love mushrooms so this might be something right up my alley to enjoy. I wonder if they ship?

    • @BrainyPintSizer, there has got to be a spot in NY that serves them or a farmer’s market that sells them. I will try to find out for you!
