    FROM THE FIELD: Nepal’s magic mushrooms

    The traditional cultivation of oyster mushrooms in Nepal, which has required burning large quantities of wood, has been replaced by the environmentally friendly use of solar power, thanks to a project supported by the UN Development Programme (UNDP).

    Mushrooms are nutritious, do not require soil in which to grow, and represent a high value crop in the mountainous Asian country. However, the soil-free growing method does require a steaming process in a drum, using firewood.

    The practice has led to deforestation and an increase in harmful climate change-inducing carbon dioxide. But now solar water heaters are being used as part of the process.

    In Athens, A Mushroom Specialty Shop

    Despite the image that Greece wants to sell the world as a holiday destination of eternal summer with beautiful beaches and clear water, the fact remains that it is a very mountainous country – almost a third of Greek land consists of hills and mountains. Most are forested, hosting a great diversity of ecosystems that offer fertile ground for mushrooms in particular.

    That said, there are almost no traditional Greek dishes using mushrooms, and many people avoid them altogether, even the common cultivated varieties, from fear of getting sick. For many, meanwhile, mushrooms don’t evoke the best memories: During the 70s and 80s, the tinned variety was mainly used in cooking, as fresh cultivated mushrooms were rare and expensive. Although this picture has changed quite drastically in the last 20 years, during which time the cultivation of both common and rare varieties has increased in the country, Greeks are still a bit wary when it comes to mushrooms.

    The lack of education on how to use mushrooms in the kitchen, however, did not deter Stathis Giannatos from opening, in 2016, the first ever shop in the Athens area selling wild and cultivated mushrooms, both fresh and dried, as well as an enormous variety of mushroom-based products, all of them strictly of Greek origin.
