Botanical name: Agaricus bisporus
Common name: Cremini, Crimini, Brown, Honey Brown, Baby Bellas
Swiss Brown mushrooms are closely related to white agaricus. Similar in shape and size. Tan to dark brown colour. A firmer texture than button mushrooms, with less moisture content, so they hold their shape well when cooked. Flavour is deeper and earthier than white mushrooms.
There’s no need to wash or peel mushrooms – simply brush off any specks or wipe over with a damp cloth or paper towel. Trim stems as required.
They’re delicious marinated for an antipasto plate or slice and dice them and add to pasta, pilafs, risottos, casseroles, pie filling or curries
