    Whenever I’m invited to dinner and the dish contains mushrooms, I eat everything but the mushrooms. For me it’s like biting through rubber. And they say that people whose ancestors came from Slavic countries love mushrooms. Well, my grandparents came from from Eastern Europe (not western China) but I hate mushrooms.

    One of the weirder things of the mycoid world is that many mushrooms that are edible in Europe are inedible to deadly in North America. It’s been speculated on why for years. There are a few mushrooms that are picked in Oregon like morels, shitakes, and white truffels, but most of the mushrooms would make you sick or worse. It wasn’t many years ago that a group of young adults ate some “death ball” mushrooms they found in the woods.
    I don’t mind the commercially-grown button mushrooms, but I’d never try one from the woods. Far too easy to make a mistake.
    I limit my eating of local species to berries from genuses rubus, vaccinium, and fragaria.

    I used to eat mushrooms out of the jar, long ago. Lost my taste for them. Never have cared for them in my food.

    oh well, then I guess you get no dinner. that is what my mom would have said, we could not afford to be picky, eat what is fixed or eat nothing. But then my mom NEVER cooked or even ever ate a mushroom that I know of. Maybe in her later years on a pizza but she never ever cooked with them.

    We love mushrooms in our house! Shiitake, portobello, button… they’re all good!

    Which country are you from? My Mid-Eurasia map skill are sadly lacking.

    I love mushrooms, but they don’t love me — they give me intestinal cramps and explosive diarrhea.

    OK, ewalnut, that’s way more than I needed to know!

    To me, fresh cooked mushrooms taste like dirt.

    If I know Mushrooms have come in contact with the food, I can’t eat it. It makes me nauseous to think that when the person made the dish, they may NOT have washed it 100%, and that animal fecal matter may be on the mushrooms still.

    Mushrooms are the very food straight from the devil’s own Rs, so they are. No fungus shall pass these lips of mine.

    Yummm – love mushrooms. Do not like onions either. My least favorite is green bell peppers- hate, hate, hate!
