Definently. Obviously, you do know that it's called "Caesar's" because it was the favorite mushroom of Julius Caesar. Pliny the Elder mentioned it, too, and commented this mushroom is so delicious that it makes truffles taste like cancer in comparison.
Good luck. It's a very rare species in Eurasia, and many populations are protected because they grow in national parks. There is an identical cryptospecies in the US that physically looks and tastes exactly like it, but is genetically distinct. The Caesar's Amanita has a flavor comparable to that of chestnuts, and is best appreciated raw (and good luck telling the difference between it and yellow fly agaric or blond panther mushrooms!).
I wrote two recipes to take advantage of the momentous event, just in case, but, I figure one can easily substitute raw button mushrooms dusted in ground chestnuts if you can't find any Caesar's.
hey! I'm actually doing a mushroom blog partially inspired by this comment! I want a place to put every interesting fact, photo, recipe (kinda just an ecclectic collection of shit) based around each mushroom. So I'm starting it with my book, as I draw the mushroom, I'll make a page for it, and on each page will be a collection of interesting info and links about that specific type.
I would like to formally request your recipes for when i do my caesar amanita page! I will be quoting you as well
I will! It's going slowly right now, I'm trying to put together as much material it's gonna be an EVERYTHING mushroom page. the next ones up are cyptotrama asparata and the oyster mushroom. I'm gonna wait a little to do caesar's amanita because I already have two amanitas, but I only have one russula I might bump that one up the list. i need to do a few blue mushrooms too, I have a couple picked out, do you have a favourite?
