They're not exactly "mushroomy" but some people prefer them over all the other wild fungus. Often they are chicken fried(breaded and pan fried) but I've done a stir fry with beef tips and red wine/soy sauce and it was quite good

How do these taste

Dinner! I'm guessing there is wood under the ground for it to feed on
