<<16th August 2022 – Hong Kong>> The Legacy House celebrates the harvest of delicious and earthy wild mushrooms in China’s southwestern-most province of Yunnan, by way of a new seasonal menu of mushroom specials by Chinese Executive Chef Li Chi-Wai. From now until end of September 2022, The Legacy House will serve an exquisite selection of dishes that features freshly foraged mushrooms that are delivered twice per week from Yunnan, straight to The Legacy House.
A province renowned for the variety and delicacy of its mushrooms, Yunnan’s summertime monsoon results in a trove of wild mushrooms foraged by entrepreneurs and amateur enthusiasts alike. Today, there are at least 1,000 varieties of edible varieties of mushroom – such as lichen, wood ear and porcini – growing in the forests and meadows of Yunnan. High in protein and low in fat, mushrooms are revered for their health and medicinal properties, as well as reputed aphrodisiac qualities
The limited-time Yunnan Mushroom Menu with a total of eight new dishes by Chef Li features the unique flavours and versatility of wild mushrooms. Highlights include Poached Geoduck(HKD420) that is softly poached with luffa and Yunnan’s jicong or termite mushrooms, which grow only on termite mounds in the wild.
The Swollen Stalked Cat Mushroom is a mild, sweet, firm and versatile mushroom variety and the star of the Wagyu Beef Stir-Fry (HKD780.) The mushrooms are wok-fried with green onion, chilli and wagyu beef to create a harmonious dish. The beloved wild Chanterelle Mushroom can be enjoyed with Marinated Fish Skin (HKD280), featuring premium caviar.
Finally, a dish that incorporates three varieties of mushroom is the Pan-Fried Fresh Wild Mushroom Combination (HKD680), a highly nutritious vegetarian dish of Yunnan mushrooms including swollen-stalked mushroom, termite and the highly elusive matsutake.
