The Shiitake mushroom is originally from East Asia. It has been cultivated for over 1,000 years, but there are earlier references to its consumption. In their place of origin these mushrooms grow on a tree called Shii. They are recognized by their brown hat with gray specks and aroma. Currently, the Shiitake is one of the main sources of protein in the diet of people in several Eastern countries, especially in Japan and China.
