Our Producer

Visit a shiitake mushroom farm close to Porto, learn how it’s made, pick mushrooms yourself, and in the end indulge yourself with a tasting. You arrive at the mushroom farm and we introduce you to the farmer. After the presentation, we walk through the farm to see the shiitake mushrooms and all the equipment and special techniques for harvesting.

This is an authentic experience, and you get to enjoy a workshop about mushroom inoculation and pick your own shiitake mushrooms. The farmer teaches you how to taste shiitake mushrooms and explains what makes good mushrooms — and what makes the bad stuff, too.

During lunch on the farm, you can see all the mushroom dishes. You end this day with a wealth of knowledge about production techniques, history, and the freshness, intensity, and variety that high-quality mushrooms can offer.
