The gírgola de castañar or Maitake is a mushroom native to Montseny but nature makes very few specimens. From the antiquity it is very valued by the people of the towns of the Montseny. It is characterized by its consistent texture and its spectacular choraloid shape. We have managed to cultivate it in order to recover this appreciated species and make it available to everyone.
The chestnut or maitake gargoyle has an exquisite taste and aroma. Its firm texture allows many types of preparations: sautéed, marinated, fried,…
It is possible to sauté to alive fire with a dash of oil, salt and a pinch of pepper, with vegetables, pasta or rice. It can also be grilled, battered in tempura, in tortilla, as pâté or to fill canelloni.
Known by oriental medicine for many centuries for its ability to improve the body’s natural defenses. There have been some clinical trials that seem to demonstrate activity against several cancers and against high blood glucose levels.
